For Student Applicants

The Reference Request System allows applicants for Australian post-graduate programs in Psychology to apply for a reference from academic and/or professional referees in three simple steps:

  1. You (the student) nominate referees, and indicate the programs and institutions being applied to.
  2. The Referee(nominated by you the student) completes a reference online.
  3. You (the student) then allow the completed reference to be shared with the programs you have applied to.

The objective of this system is to give you control, visibility and tracking over the references made by your referees. Once your referee has submitted a reference, you will receive a notification via email and be prompted to share this reference with the institution(s) of your desired future study programme. Note that the reference is confidential, which means that you will not be able to view the content of the reference.
