TOP TIP 1 from the Westminster Business School
Phil Sainter, Course Leader for the Business Management BA Honours course, says: “Entering the clearing process is a big step in your life, but don’t worry almost everyone will be feeling the same. You can, however, reduce your stress and worry by treating the whole process as a project.
“Treating clearing as a project means that you do background research about the universities and degrees available. It also allows you to identify potential risks and how to reduce these risks. Finally, it helps you to hit the ground running once you start your course in September because you already know about the course and the university before you start.
“Treating things as projects are an important business skill, helping you think logically about what you need to do and how you are going to achieve it, to gain the maximum benefit.”
The University of Westminster's Clearing Toolkit is a useful tool for organising all the data and your thoughts around different courses and universities.
