Clearing success story: Westminster

Read about Sahra's experience of getting a place through Clearing to study History at the University of Westminster.

What degree did you originally apply for and where?

Philosophy BA at the University of Kent. 

Why did you use Clearing?

I decided I didn't want to move out to Kent, or study Philosophy, and I wanted to stay in London. I researched a day before results day which universities in London I could attend. The best option for me was Westminster because the location and course structure really appealed to me. 

Why did you choose History at Westminster?

The History course at Westminster is very modern and there's a great variety of modules that can be chosen. I think what really helped me choose was the kind and approachable atmosphere at Westminster. Everyone was lovely and really helped ease my anxiety in starting in a new environment.

Did you find accommodation easily?

I live at home and commute into central London which takes me around 45 minutes. 

How was your university experience?

I've really enjoyed my time at university and will really miss it once I graduate. My lecturers especially really helped in building my confidence and supported my passion. I will never forget their kind and understanding attitude towards all of us on the course and would definitely recommend the History course at the University of Westminster.
