To mark A-Level results day and the start of Clearing, the University of Bedfordshire is offering students the chance to take part in a forensic science-themed escape room and #EscapetoBeds.
On Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 August from 10am to 3pm in The Mall, Luton, teams of students will be up against the clock finding fingerprints, footprints, chemical analysis and crime scene evidence to prevent a notorious hacker from destroying the internet.
Forensic Science is just one of the courses that will be taught in the University’s new STEM building, which opens to students in September, and will provide over 6000m2 of new teaching space, focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects, including Pharmaceutical and Chemical Science, Nutrition, Biochemistry, and Mechanical Engineering.
David Seaton, Assistant Director Recruitment and Admissions, University of Bedfordshire, said: “If you’re waiting for your A-Level results and are thinking about coming to University then come along and take part in our escape room.
“Once you’ve taken part, it is well worth visiting the University to get a feel for student life. Here we lay on campus tours each day around A-Level results day. They are run by current students which means you’ll get the chance ask questions about university life from someone who’s going through it. We can also arrange a meeting with your course tutor so you can chat through workload, course modules and any other questions you might have.”

The University’s Clearing hotline number is 0300 3300 073 and the dedicated Clearing website is www.beds.ac.uk/clearing. This year for the first time, you can apply for a place online at a time and place that suits them. We’ll also be answering questions and making offers through social media. The Live Chat team will also be available to answer any questions about the courses available, studying at the University and university life in general.
Clearing is a time for students who may not have got the grades they were expecting at A-level to explore their options and to discover the routes available to help them take their first steps in to higher education.
When studying for a University degree there will often be some twist and turns, and bumps in the road, but what is life like for those students who juggle both academic and transport timetables?
You can go through all sorts of emotions waiting for you’re A-Level results: hope, anticipation, excitement and nervousness, to name just a few.
