Referee report submission is done using an online reference request system. Please refer to the admission criteria of the course you are applying for, to see if and how many references are required.

You will still need to have an active account and may need to login to and ‘share’ the reports with the Cairnmillar Institute again before we will be able to see them.

NOTE: please be aware however that do sometimes clean their database and delete old or expired reports. If the reports have been deleted then you will need to re-request reports from the same or new referees.

Please contact the service directly if you have further questions about using old referee reports: [email protected].

Applicants submitting references will be required to use the online HODSPA reference system. A guide to the service can be found here.

Please note: This system is the same across all Australian Universities. To be able to use the system, you will need to have an active subscription. The subscription allows you access the service during the 2021 – 2022 intake from the 1st of August 2021 to 30th July 2022. The cost is $25.00 and can be paid for through the "My Account" section in the payment tab of the HODSPA reference system.

Please check beforehand if the program you are applying to requires references.

If you require support using the system, please contact the service provider directly if you require IT support as this is an external service ([email protected])
