Every year thousands of students secure their place at university through Clearing - and it isn't as scary as you might think! We asked some of our current students who came to NTU through Clearing how they found their experience.
"Clearing was incredibly scary. I didn't know what to do and my stress levels were at a maximum! However, NTU's Clearing hotline was a great relief to all that stress.
I'm extremely glad I ended up at NTU, I never knew I would love it here so much! Everyone here is so friendly, helpful and understanding, especially in the first term when everyone is new to university life.
Sometimes the best things in life are the unexpected ones I guess."
"As soon as I called NTU I was made to feel at ease by the Clearing team - the person I spoke to was calm, knowledgeable and made the process seem really easy."
"Coming here was the best decision I ever made; the course is fantastic, everything has been really easy, and I honestly couldn’t see myself anywhere else now."
"I called up NTU and asked if they had any places on the course I wanted and what grades they required. It was really well organised and I found out whether I got in pretty much straight away."
"[Clearing is] a leap of faith, but come three or four weeks of attending the university, you’ll love it. Don’t let the apprehension of the unknown keep you from coming, the people are lovely and anyone can fit right in."
"The whole process was stressful but people who I spoke to were really understanding and answered all my questions. Not getting in to my preferred choice was the best thing that ever happened to me and I enjoy my course a lot and have made friends for life."
