I used Clearing when I didn’t achieve the grades I needed to get into my first or insurance choice universities. I’d met a Psychology lecturer at an Essex Open Day and found his research really interesting and exciting, so I decided to call Essex on their Clearing hotline. I actually spoke to a student ambassador who was on the course I wanted to apply for; Psychology with Cognitive Neuroscience. We chatted for ages about the course and the uni as a whole so I was thrilled when she offered me a place. That was in summer 2018, I now have two first class degrees from Essex and am currently studying for my PhD – something I never thought possible!
