SECOND CHANCE FOR SOCIAL WORK STUDENTS

 

Students who haven’t got the A-levels they want or who have decided to apply to go to university at the last minute are being reassured there are still places available at the Hull School of Health and Social Care.

 

The University of Lincoln in Hull is holding a Clearing open day in August for students who are late making their decisions or who have not received their expected exam results.

 

On Friday 18th August the university will open the doors to the school on George Street between 1pm and 3pm for those who would like to find out more about what’s on offer.

 

Throughout the day staff will be available from the 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 2006.

 

From Thursday 17th August, when A-level results are released, you can call the university’s Clearing hotline on 01522 886622.
