Open for Clearing
17 August 09
The University of Bradford's Clearing hotline will open on Thursday 20 August as students around the UK will receive their A-Level results.
The University is also hosting three Open Days on Saturday 22, Sunday 23 and Wednesday 26 August 2009, for students to check out a potential new place of study and to come along to and find out more about a programme of study that might interest them. The University's doors will be open from 10am and members of staff from across the University will be on hand in the Atrium to discuss subject areas and services available to students. There will also be opportunities to take campus tours and view accommodation.
It's not too late for students who want to start a degree this year. Lauren Cain who is studying Optometry at the University said: "On results day I was disappointed that I hadn't achieve the grades I wanted. The universities I had applied to also withdrew my conditional offers. My college told me not to worry and informed me about Clearing hotlines that universities have that could help students who had not met their expected grades.
"I telephoned the University of Bradford for advice. I was put at ease immediately. The person I spoke to was so helpful and supportive and sorted me a place on the course straight away.
"I would tell anyone who has to go through clearing not to worry. There will be plenty of options still available. Clearing is not the end of the world. You will still get what you want to do."
The Clearing hotline will be open at various times from Thursday 20 August to Friday 28 August.
