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 in Hull is holding two Clearing open days in August for students who are late making their decisions or who have not received their expected exam results.


On Friday 19th August and Monday 22nd August the university will open the doors to its schools on George Street and in Queens Gardens between 10am and 3pm for those who would like to find out more about the courses on offer.


Child and Youth Studies, Interactive Multimedia, Illustration, TV & Film Design and Social Work are just some of the courses available.


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


Information will also be available 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 Karen Raynes 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.”


Around 100 academics and admissions workers will be staffing the University of Lincoln’s Clearing call centre for a week, to take calls from students, answer their questions and offer students places on courses starting in September 2005.


From Thursday 18th August, when A-level results are released, you can call the university’s Clearing hotline on 01522 886622.
