Please note that referees’ contact details are a compulsory field on the application form and you should request permission from those whose details you give. However, candidates are responsible for ensuring that their chosen referees submit their reference by the deadline. Missing references will NOT be chased by the Thouron Award U.K. administration. It should be noted that applicants will be at a disadvantage if their application is not accompanied by the required two references. Suggestions for appropriate referees might include the following: i) University Dean of Faculty or Master of College, ii) Professor or Head of Department/School who can assess academic performance, iii) tutor/lecturer/class head or other person with personal knowledge of applicant’s work, activities and other strengths, iv) supervisor/manager of any employment, paid or voluntary, permanent or temporary.
