Letter requests and references

Letter requests and references

We can provide letters for:

  • council tax exemption, your selected bank/building society
  • opening a student bank account,
  • job centres and a number of other organisations.

The letters detail the course you are studying, what year you are currently studying in, the expected course length, the start/end dates, expected graduation date and permanent and term-time address details.

Please e-mail students@bnu.ac.uk with any queries.

Please inform us of any changes to your permanent or term-time addresses - it’s important that we keep your record up to date so your letters will print out with the latest permanent and term-time address (these can be the same).

If you want to inform us of a change of address please e-mail students@bnu.ac.uk 


We are able to provide references on headed paper, including our institution stamp and signature - if you are a current student, please ask your prospective employer to email us at students@bnu.ac.uk and we will reply as soon as possible.

If you are a graduate, please ask your prospective employer to contact awards@bnu.ac.uk.

Please note that we require confirmation from you that you are happy for Buckinghamshire New University to release information regarding your course - your employer should have you sign a disclaimer and attach this via e-mail when getting in touch with us.

If you have had a reference request e-mailed to our team and haven’t received a response within five working days please contact us.
