1. May I request that my referees send their reports via email to email@example.com, before I complete my online application?
Yes, you can. However, please request your Referee(s) to state your NGS' application number and your full name in his/her email. Please ensure you provide your Referee(s) the correct application number.
2. Will my application be processed if only 1 of my referees has submitted the report / letter?
No. Your application will be put on hold until all documents are complete.
3. Is there a difference between submitting a Referee Report or a Letter of Recommendation?
"Referee Report" is compulsory, while "Letter of Recommendation" is optional. Information important to an application will be extracted from the Referee Reports.
4. Do I have to send my referees a copy of the "Referee Report Form" for their completion?
Your Referees may complete and submit their Reports online directly and conveniently.
If your Referee does not receive the application system-generated email containing the link to the online Referee Report template, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, stating
so that we may re-generate the email.
ALTERNATIVELY, you may send your Referee(s) this link to download the Referee Report template.
EITHER (a) OR (b) will suffice.
