It's Clearing time again


It’s hard to believe how quick it has come around, but it’s that time of year again!

As of yesterday at 6pm, we have entered into clearing.

This is our busiest recruitment session of the academic year. Myself and the surrounding team of students, permanent staff and academics are rallying to assist applicants on their journey into higher education.

We offer advice and assistance with making applications; whether it be over the telephone, through email, or on live chat.

People decide to come into university through clearing for many different reasons. You may not be holding any offers from universities and would like to attend in September. You may have achieved higher or lower grades than you were expecting, and so would like to adjust your application, to another university or a different course. Or you may have just decided to come to university, and would like to make your first application to us through clearing.

Whatever your story is, we are happy to help. Many of us here in the clearing office have first-hand experience of going through the application process, university, and clearing, so we can really relate to the thousands who contact us.

Results day and the lead up to the new academic year can be an extremely daunting time, so if you are waiting for results or to hear back from universities- don’t panic! There are many others in the same boat as you- contact us and we can answer any queries that you may have.

We have a number of courses still available to join for a September 2015 start. My advice would be to research the courses and universities that interest you; consider the grades you are working towards, the experience you have, your interests and passions, and of course what university appeals to you.

A good place to start is searching for courses- you can do this through the UCAS website. You can also have a look at the courses we have to offer on our website. You will find information on the modules included in each course, the financial aspects to consider and the accreditations associated with our programmes..

Where you go to university, of course, is an incredibly important factor. If possible, you may find it really helpful to go to the university, get a feel for the campus and the surrounding areas. A great opportunity for this is to attend an open day. Our next one is this Saturday on the 4th of July. Here you can take tours of the campus and accommodation, speak to students about their university experience and learn more about your course of interest from the academic staff

If you have any questions, feel free to use our clearing hotline on 020 8331 9000.
Good luck!
