University of Greenwich staff were on hand from 6am yesterday, helping students who received their results to find the right course for them.

One of the many students securing their places was Jessica Ndombe, 19, who was delighted to get a place to study English Language and English Language teaching.

And she's following in the footsteps of her mum, who studied Accounting and Finance at the university when Jessica was little.

Jessica, who lives in North London, said: "Clearing was actually really good, I didn't wait at all and as soon as I called, I got through to someone.

"I was nervous – I'd been a bit worried because I didn't know if I'd be able to get in, so it was a huge relief when I did!"

Jessica remembers visiting Greenwich as a youngster when her mum was studying, and said she loves the area, which is a World Heritage Site.

She added: "I was familiar with Greenwich, but I'd not been there in so long. I really like the environment and the people I met."

Clearing is still open today at Greenwich University and lines don't close until 6pm, so get in touch to find out what's on offer.
