SECOND CHANCE AT UNIVERSITY OPEN DAY

 

Students who haven’t got the A-level results 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 for students who are late making their decisions or who have not received the exam results they expected.

 

On Saturday 18 August and Tuesday 21 August the university will open its doors at its Brayford Pool campus between 10am and 3pm to those who would like to find out more about the courses on offer.

 

It is a great chance to see the university’s excellent facilities. More than £100 million has been invested in making the university perfect for students, including a state-of-the-art sports centre and newly built Students’ Union centre, library and Performing Arts Centre.

 

Information will also be available on the various support services including help with funding, careers, disabilities and accommodation. Visitors will also receive campus tours, including a look at accommodation.

 

If students can’t make it to the open days the university will have around 100 academics and admissions workers staffing the Clearing hotline for a week from 16 August, to take calls from students, answer their questions and offer students places on courses starting in September 2007.

 

“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, Senior UK Recruitment Officer.

 

“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.”

 

From Thursday 16 August, when A-level results are released, students can call the university’s Clearing hotline on 01522 886622.
