If you thought you’d left it too late to apply for a place at university this September, think again – there‘s still time to snap up the last few vacancies.


The University of Lincoln will be holding two Clearing open days in August for the benefit of those still hoping to gain a place.


On Saturday 21st August and Thursday 26th August the university will open its doors at the Brayford Pool campus between 10am and 3pm to those who would like to find out more about the courses on offer.


If you’re interested in courses at other campuses in and around Lincoln come to the Brayford Pool campus, where transport will be provided to take visitors to other sites.


Law, Drama, Furniture Design, Journalism, Forensic Sciences, Architecture, and Complementary Medicine are just some of the programmes on offer at the university.


Throughout the day staff will be available from each department to discuss the options still available and how to apply for those places.


Experienced staff will provide information on the various student support facilities such as funding, careers, disabilities and accommodation. Visitors will also receive campus tours, including accommodation. 


“It is important that would-be students realise that there is still time for them to apply for the last few places available,” said Jacqueline Mayer, student recruitment manager. 


“The offer of a place is, of course, subject to qualifications and experience, but there is a possibility that some students may be able to sign up for a place on the day.”


The Clearing system is intended for students who are late making their decisions or who have not received their expected exam results.


From 19th August 2004, when A-level results are released, you can call the university’s Clearing hotline on Lincoln 886622.
