What is a standard reference?
A standard reference is letter which includes information about a student which prospective employers or the student themselves can request. It includes information such as:

- Classification (if graduated)
How do I request a reference?

Employers can also contact GSM London to request a reference from the Student Hub via the email addresses above. If the request is made by an Employer we will need the student’s consent to share the information we hold on the student records before we can process the reference. All information we hold about students is handled strictly within the Data Protection Act.
How long does it take?
Five working days if consent to share is included, it may be delayed if consent to share is not included.
How will I be notified?
