My University Experience & Why You Should Consider Clearing | Lifestyle

A bit of a random post today however, I had a little opportunity this week to head back in to education (sort of) and check out the University of Hull campus. After living in Hull for most of my life I havn't actually seen much of the campus so I signed myself up to a little tour. 

Going to University in Hull wasn't really ever something I considered as I really wanted to move somewhere else however after wandering around the campus I realised how beautiful it was and also how amazing the facilities where I feel like I shouldn't have ruled it out just as it was close to home. However, there is always time in the future! (FYI these snaps are all taken on campus, how pretty is it!!)

Anyway, the reason I am sharing this with you today as A level results day is just around the corner and I wanted to talk about the options you have to progress further with your education.

For my first year of university I was accepted on to an Access course. This means I had a sort of extra year in between my A Levels and starting my degree, to study and decide the right route for me. I moved to London and Studied Access to HE Fashion at the University of the Arts, London College of Fashion. I knew that I had a place on the course a lot earlier than my peers so I wasnt as worried come results day however, on the day itself I noticed most people wasn't as worried due to knowing there are other options. If you dont get the results you nesseciary needed or didn't secure a place on the course you initially wanted there its important to know your options. Most universities offer a 'clearing service' to help you determine what your options are. Its worth maybe looking in to this prior to results day just incase and knowing the numbers of who to contact may also be handy! 

I actually did sort of go through clearing as I choose my 5 options on UCAS attended a few entrance interviews and knew that they where not going to go in my favour so rather than wait to be rejected I decided to cancel those options and choose something different this meant I had one choice and luckily I was accepted straight away on the course that I wanted. It may seem like a very daunting and scary process but there is lots of advice available and people are on hand to help you through it! This post is in collaboration with Hull University and they have a handy clearing website with everything you need to know alternatively they have more information and details of what happens next here!  Or incase there is a burning question you need the know the answer to right now you can call 01482 297000, oh and thats the number you will need on the day too so best to make a note of that one.

If you are interested in any courses at The University of Hull but don't have time to go check it out before the big day they have a fabulous Youtube page that you can check out!

I may be bias but I love Hull and after living in London and Manchester the place we decided to settle and buy a house is Hull, thats saying something isn't it! Its a fab place with lots to do, see and explore so make sure you make it an option!
