Real Life Experiences
What do students say about Clearing?
"It really is worth ringing round universities to see what else is on offer. Make a list of questions, compare your options and if you have time to look around then do so. Just because your friends are going and doing something doesn't mean you have to, it's OK to go out on a limb as long as you follow your dreams and are happy. Life goes on and unexpected results can open up a whole new world." Nakai, Newman University, Birmingham
