Hear from Alistair Dickson


‘I decided to give Swansea University's Clearing helpline a call, and I was put through to a current Swansea University student; they helped me fill out my application. When my phone call ended, my application to study at Swansea University had been accepted!

I then received an invitation to attend a Clearing Open Day at the university, where I was able to have a tour around campus, as well as talk to lecturers and students about the course. This helped me feel more confident about my decision to study at Swansea and left me feeling eager to get started.’

'I had a positive clearing experience with Swansea University. The staff member that I had spoken to was really helpful and polite. I was able to study the course that I had wanted to and was happy with the outcome. Once I had the offer, the university made sure that I had the necessary information going forward.

One of the main reasons I chose Swansea University was that the course I wanted was offered. I wanted to study Economics and Finance and other universities that I had listed with clearing did not offer Economics and Finance together as a degree.'
