Who We Are Heading

Writing a Teachers' Reference

The purpose of the reference is to provide tutors at Oxford with additional information on the academic suitability of a candidate to study their chosen subject.

The reference is valued because it is provided by an educational professional who has known the candidate, and who has the experience to make a clear, comprehensive and realistic assessment of the student’s academic ability and potential for degree-level study.
