Clearing

Helloooo, readers :)

Another fortnight, another blog! :) How have you all been?

As you may or may not know, we are now officially in the Clearing phase of the UCAS application cycle (and have been since July 1st). We've already taken lots of applications, but I know this is nothing compared to the torrent of applications that’ll be made come A-Level Results day!

If you’d like to keep track of what’s going on with the University of Greenwich over Clearing, please feel free to check out our Clearing Diary, where a different member of the Enquiry Unit will be blogging every day until the end of Clearing: http://greenwich-clearing2013.blogspot.co.uk/

Another interesting link for any of you interested in joining us to study is this one: http://www.ucas.com/apply/key-dates It gives you all of the key dates in the UCAS cycle, so even if you miss out on joining us this academic year, you can be well prepared for the 2014 intake :)

So, what else is new? Oh, did I tell you what I’m graduating with? I don’t think I did…a 2:1!! I’m so pleased! I honestly thought I’d be getting a 2:2 as I took on far too much this year, but it seems I’m not so poor at managing my workload after all!!

I am very proud to say that alongside attaining a 2:1 in BA Hons Business Psychology, I have been an active member of the University of Greenwich Cheerleading Squad for three years, a very successful Social Secretary and member of the Cheer committee for one year (organising a tremendously successful fund raiser, initiations, socials and tour), an enthusiastic Senior Student Ambassador and Enquiry Unit Assistant (recently promoted to Senior Clearing Assistant) and a popular candidate in the Student Union Elections during the time I ran. I’m not telling you these things for the sake of promoting myself to you all – I’m telling you this so you can see that the possibilities at university are endless!! It is indeed possible to juggle your degree, a job, and your social life and excel in each and every category!

I've said this in previous posts and I’ll say it again, folks – university (and life!) is what you make it! University is so much more than a degree – it is an opportunity to gain skills and experience that, combined with your degree, make you far more employable than a multitude of other candidates going for the same jobs as you in the future. Not to mention all of the friends you make along the way! They are the people on your course, in your halls of residence, at work and in any sports club or society you may join – really putting yourself out there is a great way to network and make friends that you never would have known otherwise :)

How to end this fortnight’s blog? With Eric, of course! Here he is aged approximately 11 weeks:


He had more leaves, but they fell/were broken off during transit (from our usual Enquiry Unit office on Southwood Site to the big Clearing office on Mansion Site) :( Still – he remains alive and seems to be recovering nicely :)

Until next time, my lovelies :)
