Clearing and Adjustment - student profiles
Stories from current students who came to Sheffield through our Clearing and Adjustment process.
Nicole Bradford, Education, Culture and Childhood
I was really nervous about starting the clearing process however it was actually a really pleasant experience and super stress free. Everyone I spoke to on the phone were super helpful and congratulated me on my place, which was a lovely touch.
Connor Bragger, Journalism Studies
The clearing process can be an anxious wait, especially on popular courses like journalism which very rarely go into clearing, but my advice would be to go to the university you have in mind. If your heart is set on it, give them a ring.
Christina Otoo Obeng, Law (European and International)
The adjustment process was so much simpler than I had imagined. At first, I didn’t know much about clearing and adjustment so during the summer I did a lot of research. Many people described it as a stressful process due to spaces being limited, but that certainly wasn’t the case for me here at Sheffield.
