Eniola's Clearing Journey

"Applying to university through Clearing was a last-minute decision for me. I was coming to the end of my gap year, in which I developed a passion for marketing and learning French, despite having previously studied Radiotherapy at another university. It was not until after a trip to the South of France that I decided to take a leap of faith and apply to university again. It made me realise how much I loved learning French, and how better than to combine that with another thing I loved, marketing. I did some research and Essex was one of the few universities that offered the course I wanted, Business Management with French, and so I applied just two weeks before the start date! Since applying I have immensely grown, I’ve become a Social Media Ambassador for the uni, completed a Summer Marketing Internship in Paris and am even featured in the 2025 prospectus! Although it was quite daunting for me at first, it shows that starting over again is not a bad thing and many opportunities can come from it."
