Rachel Pearce, BA (Hons) Fine Art

A Level results day started badly for Rachel.

“I didn’t do as well as I’d hoped. I got nervous and flunked them a bit. It had been a stressful day and the University of Lincoln were so lovely. They had been dealing with a lot of people like me, they understood and helped with everything.”

The University of Lincoln were able to offer Rachel a place to study fine art.

“I was so relieved. I was ecstatic that I’d managed to get into Lincoln. Any course would have been really good, but to do it at Lincoln was incredible.”

Rachel has now graduated and loved her time at Lincoln.

“The course was really good, you learn practical and transferable skills. Everyone was so nice, no one cared that I came through clearing at all!”

George Wyatt, BA (Hons) Marketing Management

George Wyatt gained his place to study Marketing Management through clearing.

“Once you get to university, it doesn’t matter if you came through clearing, it’s freshers’ week and it’s one of the best weeks of your life.

“Once you get to university, the route you’ve taken doesn’t matter. I would say you’re going to end up where you’re meant to be, and if you go to Lincoln you will have the best three years ever."

George loved Lincoln for a few different reasons.

“The lecturers are amazing, and the Students’ Union is also great, it’s a beautiful campus.”
