FAQ: Do I need a reference for applying to universities in America?

Do I need a reference for applying to universities in America?

Yes, you will. Much like your references in the UK, it needs to be sent off by your school or college and will need to have a breakdown of all of your grades and various other academic achievements; your teachers will happily oblige if you need a reference, but you will need to make sure that they know where to send it! Plenty of student’s references has gone missing in the post.
