Clearing success story: Suffolk

Read about Phoebe's experience of getting a place through Clearing to study a Wildlife, Ecology and Conservation Science BSc (Hons) at the University of Suffolk.

Phoebe used Clearing to get a place at the University of Suffolk

Why did you use Clearing?

I didn't get the grades I expected, so I didn’t get onto the courses I applied for.

Why did you choose Wildlife, Ecology and Conservation Science at Suffolk?

I looked at the modules for Suffolk and they were really good. I follow this conservationist on YouTube who films videos about animals in the Amazon rainforest and I came in to find he was one of our lecturers!

Did you find accommodation easily?

Accommodation was a big thing for me because I live in South London so commuting wasn't an option. Luckily, Suffolk had several rooms left, so that was easy enough.

How has your university experience been?

I love my course, I can’t fault it. It’s amazing, there’s stuff that took me ages to understand at A Level but my lecturer says it in five minutes and I understand it.

On my course, some people want to work with water, electricity and green energy and others want to work with birds in England, whereas I want to work with cheetahs. They really encourage you to choose your own path, so you’re not being told that there’s only one job you can do at the end.
