Clare Dixon - Teaching
Currently I teach the following module.

Useful Information for Academic Advisees

- a programme of workshops designed to help you succeed in your studies
Skills4Study website, an interactive resource for developing
student study skills.
Careers and Employability

Requests for Reference Letters
If you would like me to act as a referee for applications for
employment or further study you should first ask me whether I am
willing to do this. I will usually agree if
you are my academic advisee or my final year project student.
Given the number of such students I have allocated I am unlikely to
agree any further requests.
To request a reference you need to request this via the Departmental
Reference System SAM (see
the Departmental Student Handbook page 33 for more
information). It may take me up to a week (longer in busy periods or
vacation time) to complete the reference once this has been requested
by the relevant University. I don't usually provide references directly to
students. You need to input one request for every University/course
you apply to and are allowed to request up to five references. I can't
complete the references without you doing this.
There is a Departmental limit of 5 reference letters we
should provide. I will only agree an extension to this in exceptional
University and the Student Guild Support Services
