Go for it because it’ll probably be the best decision you ever make that will change your future for the better.
Adam joined us via Clearing in 2014
Adam, from Warrington, was pleased because he got higher than expected grades. He had not heard of Clearing before he used it. He took a gap year and it was a last minute decision to go through Clearing but he knew that it was now or never.
He found the Clearing experience very easy and he had his course place, accommodation and finance sorted in one week.
His greatest worry was not being able to get a place on his chosen course at his first choice university – Leeds Beckett.
'Be brave and go for it because it’ll probably be the best decision you ever make that will change your future for the better.’
Adam says his course has taught him the necessary skills to succeed in the industry that he wants to go into whilst also improving his existing skills.
'I could now easily apply for journalism-related jobs as well as photography-related jobs. It has definitely widened my skill-set and made me more desirable to potential employers.'
After he finishes his degree, Adam says he will more than likely get a photography-related job either as an assistant, behind-the-scenes photographer or retoucher. He eventually wants to become a creative director for an independent magazine such as Plastik or Toilet Paper Magazine.
Without Clearing, he would be in a job that he doesn’t enjoy and in a field that isn’t creative.
