UNEXPECTED RESULTS? DON’T PANIC!
This year, for the first time, the University of Lincoln will be holding its clearing operation at the Brayford pool campus.
The clearing centre - to be held in the university’s learning resource centre - will be the first point of contact for students wishing to secure places on courses at the university.
Academic staff representing every course will be on hand to advise and offer places to potential students.
Twenty-five temporary staff members have also been employed to deal with the influx of calls expected when the ‘A’ level results come out on Thursday 15th August.
“The clearing process allows potential students to apply for a course at university at the last minute,” said a university spokesperson.
“The number of places on offer may be limited due to the late application but it is always worth calling the university to discuss the options available.
“If your results are better or worse than expected, just call the clearing centre and you will be advised on your best course of action.”
The clearing hotline for all students is 01522 886622 and the call centre will be open as follows:
15th August 8am - 8pm
16th August 8am - 6pm
17th & 18th August 9.30am - 4pm
19th - 23rd August 8am - 6pm
24th - 26th August Closed
27th - 30th August 8am - 4.30pm
If students are unsure about their options they can attend the open days which have been organised to give students and their families the ideal opportunity to talk to academic staff about possible courses and receive valuable advice about the clearing process and how to apply.
