English literature student Nicolle Loughlin changed her career plans late in the day and was delighted to discover a course she wanted to study at Bishop Grosseteste University College Lincoln.

Nicolle (19) from Holt near Norwich had applied to study nursing at other universities but changed her mind and entered the Clearing process in 2010 to look for a different course.

She fell in love with BG’s campus in uphill Lincoln on her first visit and managed to secure a place to study English Literature.

“I found Clearing to be quite an easy process and one that I am glad I took part in as it worked out for better for me,” said Nicolle.

“I originally applied to do a nursing course but changed my mind later on. When visiting the BG campus I immediately fell in love with both the place and the course, so I knew this was where I wanted to go.

“Everything is in such close proximity to BG and the support offered here is fantastic. You really get a personal feeling, it’s great!”

Nicolle has even been joined by her boyfriend Luke Scargill who liked BG so much he left his degree course at another university and enrolled at BG to study Education Studies and Special Educational Needs.

“After visiting me a few times Luke became jealous of how wonderful my university lifestyle was here compared to his own, so he enrolled here,” she said.
