Students failing to gain a place through clearing at a conventional university need not despair. There are still courses on offer at I AM University ( http:///iamuniversity.co.uk/ukbranch.php ) - the Integrated Full Spectrum Prism Synthesis Ascended Master Training Facility for the Aquarian Age. Its 600-word mission statement begins: "To unify all religions, philosophies and psychologies... a bit more ambitious than Cambridge University's, which simply talks about 'contributing to society'." Alternatively, despairing students could try the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (BKWSU) in Reading, which offers "an education in human, moral and spiritual values". Sadly, however, the website of the University of Celtic Wisdom (www.faeryshaman.org) says the institution is "not accepting students at this time".
