Clearing success story: University of the West of England (UWE)

Read about Emily's experience of getting a place through Clearing to study History at the University of the West of England (UWE)

Emily at UWE clearing success story

Why did you use Clearing?

I always wanted to study History, but in the run up to exams, I began to have a change of mind. After a good set of coursework results in Media Studies I began to think about studying that instead. Then when I got my results, I panicked and was filled with an overwhelming sense of uncertainty as to what to do next.

Why did you choose History at UWE?

UWE Bristol had a good reputation and after looking at their course for History online I found the modules really interesting. Their online clearing process was easy to navigate and very helpful which made my decision so much easier. I began to think that although this was different to the experience I was expecting, the course was sounding even better than the one I originally wanted to study.

Did you find accommodation easily?

I live at home while studying so this hasn’t been a consideration for me. Being at home allows me to have a different support network to most: my parents. Also when you’re a stay at home student, money worries are less of an issue.

How was your university experience?

Yes, I’ve enjoyed my course so much and I have some great friends who I know are passionate about their studies. I would stress that you shouldn’t be disappointed if you don’t get your first choice. Clearing can be a really helpful tool that can offer a number of possibilities.
