Artificial Intelligence can only grow in the future as it becomes more and more a part of our lives. There will be an increasing demand for people with skills and understanding of robotics and AI.

Before I applied, I thought clearing was for the purpose of just potentially getting a place at university. That there was a slight chance that you would get a place only if there were still places available. It came to be that it took less than a few days from applying for the course to being enrolled on the course, and a day or so after I got a place to live on campus too.
