Amber Kalejaiye accepted a place on a Foundation Year at Sussex through Clearing. She said she would recommend studying at Sussex because of the support available and the friendly atmosphere.
Clearing: Amber's experience
"When it came to Clearing I’d already been researching for the past two weeks because I wanted to be prepared, I didn’t want to be floundering.
"Some people were saying that sometimes you get interviewed, so I’d even prepared interview questions. I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t going to freak out. I still had palpitations that morning, my body woke me up at about 5am because I was so anxious, so I was waiting for about three hours for my results.
"When I got my results I rang Sussex and they offered me a place on the Foundation Year.
Sussex is a wonderful university, people really go out of their way for you, they make the effort to make sure you're ok.” amber Kalejaiye
Arts and Humanities (with a Foundation Year)
"From what I’ve seen of my friends’ universities I’d say that Sussex is one of the most progressive ones. It’s very forward thinking and there’s just an attitude that I really like and which I don’t think my friends have experienced. I just feel like it’s got a bit of everything.
"Would I recommend Sussex to anyone else thinking of applying? Oh god, yeah! I think it’s good for pretty much everyone.
"You have the chance to be away from a busy scene, you also have the chance to go to a very busy scene, you’re also right by the seaside – lovely.
"Also, Sussex is a wonderful university, people really go out of their way for you, they really make the effort to make sure you’re ok. It’s just got a really good atmosphere."
