University of Gloucestershire is open for clearing

Share this article

Despite a continuing rise in applications, the University of Gloucestershire expects to have a small number of places available in this year’s university clearing.

Staff at the University will be standing by to take calls from students who are still seeking places when the A level results are published on Thursday 19 August.

Vacancies to study business management, computing, accountancy, fine art and law will be on offer at the University plus a handful of places in other disciplines. 
Brian Miller, director of student recruitment is keen to stress however, that these places are limited in numbers and those looking to study for September should get in touch with the University as soon as possible on results day.

“We will not know exactly how many places will be available in clearing until we receive this year’s A level results, but the expectation is that it will be a small number, mostly in business disciplines plus a limited number of places in our education department following our recent excellent Ofsted report.”

The University of Gloucestershire’s dedicated Clearing helpline will be available from 8am on Thursday with staff and admission tutors on hand to answer queries about courses.

The University offers generous bursaries to new students from Gloucestershire and neighbouring counties so, students from the local region are encouraged to apply.

“It can make economic sense to consider studying closer to home,” said Mr Miller.  “For students with the right grades, we can offer them a place over the phone where we have vacancies, subject to receiving their UCAS clearing passport.”

Students can call the Clearing Helpline on 01242 714001 or look for vacancies on the University website which will go live on 19 August.
