Student Thankful That Clearing Led to Glyndŵr University

University clearing can be a stressful experience. If you do not achieve the grades you were hoping for or receive your expected offer, it can seem like the end of the world.

Current Wrexham Glyndŵr University Student Ambassador Lucy Duncan, studying History, found herself in exactly that situation two years ago. On A-Level results day, Lucy, now 20, experienced disappointment when she missed out on her original choices. Clearing presented her with Wrexham Glyndŵr as an alternative.

Lucy says what started as a challenging day turned out to be the foundation for a brilliant experience at Glyndŵr.

“My advice to other students is that yes, it is very stressful, but no-one should be afraid to put calls into places themselves. Patience is key, and try not to put too much pressure on yourself about your first choices.”

First-Ever Law Degree in NE at WGU

Glyndŵr has launched a new Law degree, the first of its kind in North East Wales. Previously, students hoping to work towards a career in law would have had to look outside the area to study. However, this new course will give students the option to stay in the region.

It focuses on the academic and professional foundations for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination 1 and 2 and the Bar Training Course.

Dr Karen Cooper, an experienced academic who has successfully delivered similar programmes at other Universities, will provide the course. Dr Cooper said: “This is an exciting development for Glyndŵr and legal education in the region. It will enable the university to provide the foundation to support those working towards a career in law.”

Iolo Madoc-Jones, professor of Criminal and Social Justice at Glyndŵr University, said: “The course provides the first step on the way to becoming a solicitor, and it covers a large part of the curriculum needed for the SQE.”
