I’d visited Nottingham Trent University before – to see friends – and I loved the city, and knew it was a respectable university to attend.
I made a call to the Clearing office, informed them of my grades, and then they offered me a place as long as my personal statement was sufficient. It was very stress-free and easy.
My advice to other people in my situation this year would be: do it. It’s 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.
