There's lots of reasons why our students applied through Clearing. Here's just a few of their stories:
Rhiannon was heartbroken when she found out she hadn't got a place at her first choice university, but knows now that wasn't the end of the world. She is studying for a BA (Hons) English and Creative Writing.
Simon Glazin came to Birmingham City University originally studying Sociology, only to realise he’d rather be doing English. For him, changing course paid off, as he’s now an award-winning fashion journalist.
Some students choose Clearing due to a boring job. Hannah Patterson was working in a bank and realised that it wasn’t the career she really wanted, so made a last-minute decision to study Media and Communication. Hannah now works as a presenter and voiceover artist.
