SECOND CHANCE AT UNIVERSITY OPEN DAY

 

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.

 

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

 

On Saturday 19th August and Tuesday 22nd 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.

 

Anyone interested in courses at other campuses in and around Lincoln can also come to the Brayford Pool campus, where transport will be provided to take visitors to other sites.

 

Law, Equine Science, Graphic Design, Journalism, History and Games Computing 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.

 

Information will also be available on the various support service 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, students can call the university’s Clearing hotline on 01522 886622.
