Requesting an academic reference
I will only write academic references for my current undergraduate students if:
You expect to achieve at least a 2.1 on your degree overall;
You provide me with an electronic transcript of all the module grades you have achieved to date;
You outline the purpose of the reference and why you wish me to be your referee; and
You detail who the reference should be sent to, and by when.
I may ask students requesting a reference to come and talk to me about their career plans.
I may write references for former students who did not quite achieve a 2.1, but only if they provide me with a clear justification for their degree performance and explain their career goals.
