I decided that I wanted a new adventure in July last year –  I had never really thought about the idea of going to university but something clicked last summer about wanting to go and it’s the best decision I have ever made. I started looking at courses and decided that if I was ever going to go to university, it was going to be Exeter!  

After finding MSci Nursing on their clearing choices, I knew that’s what I wanted to do. 

I was feeling stressed about entering the clearing process, and admittedly it is probably one of the most stressful times of my life, but after lots of calls and emails I found myself going to an interview and was then offered a place! The clearing team at Exeter are really helpful and guide you through everything. Admittedly phone lines are always busy but they will get to you! 

 The MSci Nursing course is great – I would strongly recommend it to anyone wanting to get into nursing. It’s a 4-year course but that extra year at Exeter gets you an integrated Masters degree. The course is really well structured and the balance between practical and theory is brilliant.  

 I know most students enter the process through not obtaining places they wanted but clearing is such a fab option for those who didn’t get the course they wanted or for people that have decided to go to university. Don’t be put off by the process, I can assure you it’s worth it!  

 My tip would be to try and stay calm and don’t be afraid to ask questions, no matter how silly you think they may be – keep focused and you will get there!
