    Hi everyone! I am applying for TCs and noticed quite a few firms ask for "academic references (undergraduate degree)". I graduated from my undergraduate institution a few years ago and have completed the LPC since - would it be okay to provide my LPC tutor's details instead of my undergraduate personal tutor's? I have asked graduate recruitment at one firm and they said it's fine but was unsure about this generally and wanted to ask.

    I'm sure that would be absolutely fine but agree that it's worth checking with each firm just in case.

    It would be wise to contact your LPC tutor first, to see whether they would be available to make a reference for you if they are requested to do so by the firms.

    That is probably a good idea, have emailed a few firms to ask. Thanks!

    He has already agreed to be my reference, thank you for the advice!

    If it explicitly states undergraduate, then provide that. If it just say academic reference, then you choose which one is most appropriate.
