Hear from our Student Ambassadors

Our call centre staff share their advice for students about to apply through Clearing and some of the reasons they enjoy their role.

My advice would be to keep your options open. Ensure you find some time to do some research and find what options are out there for you! When Clearing opens, we will be waiting to discuss your options with you.

Have all your grades to hand. Stay positive. Ask us anything, even if it’s about our own personal experiences and recommendations. Think about what you enjoy at home, and ask if we know if it can be done here in Plymouth. It more than likely can... There is so much to do here in Plymouth. Especially within the clubs and societies, there are things I’d never even considered or heard of!

I love interacting with people, helping students achieve their university dream and most importantly, sharing my experiences and love for all that is Plymouth and the University.

I have been a Clearing Ambassador for four years and I really enjoy it every year. I like being able to help people achieve their goals of studying a certain subject. Being a small part of their journey into university is a very rewarding experience. I also know how frantic the whole experience can be, having been through it myself, so I like to be able to reassure prospective students that we are here to help as much as possible.
