Lizzy Yarnold MBE
Olympic Winter Games Skeleton Gold Medallist
2014 / 2018 Graduate: Geography and Sport and Exercise Science
Lizzy found herself in Clearing when she hadn't achieved the grades she needed to study at her first choice university. She discovered skeleton in her first year at the University of Gloucestershire and was supported by staff and lecturers to balance her studies with competing and training. She is now the most decorated British Winter Olympian ever.
"My advice would be don't panic. There is time to find the right university. Compile a shortlist of what key things you would like from your course and university, call around and see what fits best, then go for it!"
