Clearing the Way Ahead for Success; Don't Panic -- We Are Here to Help. That's the Message from the University of Bedfordshire's Admissions Team to Students


Byline: NIKI CHESWORTH

SEB BROOKFIELD has found his time at the University of Bedfordshire to be transformational. Seb, who has just finished his third year, came to the university as a shy person. He was passionate about computers and so decided to study artificial intelligence and robotics when he joined the university through Clearing.

Seb explains: "I am a very, very different person now to who I was when I came here, but I think that's all part and parcel of going to university and discovering yourself. I am now the kind of person who can go up and talk to anyone, so hopefully this combined with my degree will be a good thing."

Bill Rammell, vice-chancellor, University of Bedfordshire, says: "My message to students is -- whatever your background or ability, you can flourish here at Bedfordshire. Students who choose to join the University of Bedfordshire this year can be confident we are committed to ensuring they will have the best possible student experience, backed by high quality teaching, outstanding facilities and great support."

Not only did the university get a student satisfaction rating of 84 per cent, it was also rated as a leading university for improving career prospects by the NSS.

Also, 92 per cent of Bedfordshire graduates were in work and/or further study within six months of completing their studies, according to Destination of Leavers from Higher Education 2013.

The university has main campuses in Luton, Bedford and Milton Keynes and has more than 24,000 students from all backgrounds. It boasts 10 research institutes across the university, in areas as diverse as health, energy, technology and social policy. …
