My name is Samantha and I am one of your Clearing ambassadors. Starting university and especially having to come through Clearing may seem like a daunting experience but I am here to help make the process a little less scary. My job basically is to answer any questions you guys may have about Clearing or about university in general. I will be posting a lot on all of the University’s social media, so keep a look out for my posts and make sure you are following us so you don’t miss out on anything! Some examples of what you will be expecting to see from me are top tips when it comes to Clearing and campus tours, so you can have a better feel of university life before you even start.
Let me introduce myself a bit more… I moved up to Stoke-on-Trent from London three years ago, and I have just graduated from my Law degree! I came to Staffs through Clearing and even though I did not expect to have to go to university through Clearing, Staffs stood out to me because they made the process really simple. I rang up and was offered a place almost instantly. I was given the login details to choose my accommodation and was up and running on e-vision within two days of applying. My time at Staffs has been great and I have really enjoyed the experience. I came here not knowing anyone but my highlights have definitely been the friends I have made, studying my course and being part of the African Caribbean Society, where we put on events for other students. It has been a great way to meet new people and I urge anyone starting university to join a society.
If you have any questions, our Clearing hotlines are open if you want to speak to one of the experts on 0800 590 830 or go to our website www.staffs.ac.uk/clearing and you will be able to find videos that will help! There is also a live chat available if you prefer not to call.
Next Thursday I’ll be doing a video telling you my top tips when it comes to clearing. So look out for that on Snapchat and Instagram.
Speak to you guys later!
