Student views - Clearing
See what our students have to say about their experiences of Clearing and studying at UWE Bristol.
Rebecca is studying the BSc(Hons) Adult Nursing course after successfully applying to UWE Bristol through Clearing:
“I knew other options were still available for me, so I went through Clearing to find them. I chose UWE Bristol because it’s a well-known university and has a good reputation for my course."
“I would recommend UWE Bristol to anyone who wants to go to a university. It’s full of opportunities, new experiences and amazing staff."
Stephen applied through Clearing to study the BA(Hons) Journalism course at UWE Bristol and he is now in his first year:
“I was initially a bit nervous about applying through Clearing as I didn’t know much about the process but UWE Bristol helped me a lot."
"When I rang up the advisers put me through to someone from the faculty straight away and gave me a clear idea on the course as well as what it would mean for me as a mature student. It was very personal. They talked about what the university could do for me and I found that very useful."
"The course itself is so much fun. I have been to Westminster and the House of Lords and have been reporting at Court. I have even interviewed the Mayor of Bristol. The tutors are very experienced and qualified in the industry and you get to use a varied range of software to apply in many ways, such as putting together magazines and video editing."
Tom completed the BSc(Hons) Biomedical Science course at UWE Bristol after applying through Clearing:
“I was scared when I didn’t get my original choice as I had no idea about Clearing, but the support at UWE Bristol was great. The staff really helped me through the application process which was appreciated at a time when I was very stressed."
“I would definitely recommend UWE Bristol. It’s a great university. I loved the lectures, the practicals and the labs and I also enjoyed student life there; as part of the sports club I travelled quite a lot and Bristol is one of the best cities to live in.”
Tom is now doing a Masters degree in Biomedical Science at UWE Bristol and is considering the option of a PhD in the future too.
Ellie is finishing her BA(Hons) English course at UWE Bristol after applying through Clearing:
“I felt a bit demoralised when I entered the clearing process but I would say to anyone going through it not to panic because in the end it has been a fab experience. I got to study in Bristol which is an amazing city.”
“The passion that tutors have for their subject is infectious and really makes the course what it is. UWE Bristol is wonderfully diverse and there is lots going on, so I would undoubtedly recommend this university.”
