Clearing Success Stories

Henry WilliamsHenry Williams

Henry Williams – Business Economics

Henry Alexander Williams came to Bangor University through Clearing. He is now studying BSc Business Economics.

When I got my results, I was put in Clearing. My options were to either re-sit or start calling universities. I decided to call Bangor because I was already familiar with the area and knew what the uni was like. I was very relieved when I got the offer!

Jessica NixonJessica Nixon

Jessica Nixon – Biomedical Sciences

Jessica Nixon is from Lancashire and came to Bangor University through Clearing to study Biomedical Science.

The administration side of it was really easy and everyone was really helpful! They made the whole registration process simple and stress free as well as ensuring I got the accommodation that I wanted.

Thomas Eckersley – Law

Thomas Eckersley thought his dreams of becoming a doctor were shattered when he failed to meet the grades he required to study Medicine.

Bangor University seemed friendly and welcoming when I rang Clearing.

Cyan WilliamsCyan Williams

Cyan Williams – Chemistry

Cyan, from Dunmow in Essex, has now been accepted to pursue a PhD at the University of Cambridge.

I googled which university had the best amenities and facilities, and Bangor has a good Chemistry department, a very good dyslexia department and an added bonus of being close to the beach.

Hannah PowellHannah Powell

Hannah Powell – Sport Science

A rejected job application due to a lack of the skills made Hannah consider her long-term future, and prompted her to apply to university through clearing. Three years on, one of Bangor University’s elite athletes swapped the medal podium for the graduation stage.

Coming to University was a last minute decision I made after failing to get a job I applied for because I didn’t have relevant qualifications. I woke up the next day knowing I had to do something to help me get a career that I would enjoy!
