Clearing success story: Coventry
Read about Joyce, Oluwanfunbi and Jimmy's experiences of getting a place through Clearing to study at Coventry University.
Why did you use Clearing?
Both my UCAS choices rejected me as I got lower than my predicted grades.
Why did you choose Mechanical Engineering at Coventry?
Coventry University has helped me massively with coming to terms with the fact that I’m worth so much more than just my three grades. I had such a lot to offer them, and they saw the potential in me, which I couldn’t see myself.
How have you found your university experience?
Definitely, I’m so glad I came here. I’ve met so many amazing people and have had lots of great opportunities. I was awarded two scholarships and got to go on a work placement at a global technology firm, Tata Technologies, who offered me a job after I graduate!
Oluwafunbi came through Clearing to study Law at Coventry.
“When it comes to Clearing, don’t be scared. The people on the Clearing hotline are so helpful, and they want to make sure you get the best pathway possible.”
Since studying her course, Oluwafunbi’s had support to work in an area she’s interested in.
“Through one of my lecturers, I was able to secure work at the Coventry Law Centre in immigration law – which is something I want to get into. The university were really helpful in me applying for the opportunity.”
Jimmy came through Clearing to study Business Management at Coventry.
“I came to the university via Clearing, and the process was extremely well organised, and the staff were really helpful, so it was definitely a positive experience.”
“When I first joined Coventry, I wasn’t confident and was unable to achieve good grades or speak well in public. I am now about to graduate with first-class honours, and have learnt Spanish on my year abroad in Spain and have undertaken an internship in China. I really feel like I can achieve anything!”
