Phil McCahill

Philip changed his mind about his course and by the time he got his results, he was unsure about what direction he wanted to go in. One call from Birmingham City University and he's now found the course for him.

"I wish I had known before how quick and easy the Clearing service at BCU was."

"I was initially worried during clearing that I wouldn't find what I was looking for but I was increasingly encouraged by the range of courses on offer at various universities including Birmingham City University, which meant I was always going to be able to find something that suited me."

I went into work on the day I made my application

"It was weighing me down, the uncertainty of it all. Within minutes of getting to work, I took a phone call from the BCU clearing team and after a short but encouraging conversation, I was celebrating my university place with my colleagues."

"Birmingham City University offered me the right choice of course and the process of clearing and being accepted was so clear, simple and friendly. The best thing is that even though my Clearing choice turned out to be wrong for me, the university have supported me to transfer to another BCU course, which has exceeded my expectations and now I'm sure about my future."

Take your time

"Don't pick just anything, make sure it's right for you. Yes, it's important not to miss out, but it's even more crucial that the course you choose is the perfect one!"
