News : Cumbria University Clearing Hotline Open from 6.30am
Carlisle, UK, Aug 16, 2016 -- The University of Cumbria opens its Clearing hotline on Thursday to support students as they receive their A-level results.
The call centre opens earlier than in previous years, at 6.30am, and expert call handlers will be able to offer guidance on the availability of courses, eligibility, interviews, course details and other support services.
There are still some spaces left for students in the following subject areas: Teaching, Sport, English, Business, Law and Social Sciences, Creative Arts, Performance, Applied Psychology, Social work, Sciences and Policing. For the most up to date list please check our website.
This year there will be even more Clearing hotlines, with 39 phone lines which will be manned by more students and academics. The chances are callers will be speaking to students or even their course tutor who will be able to offer advice on their options and give them the ‘low down’ on what it’s really like to study at the university.
The university has a wide variety of routes into learning so even if students haven’t got the grades they were hoping for or are returning to studies later in life, the university says it may offer the solution
It is also offering specialist advice and guidance to teachers and others supporting and advising students who are contemplating Clearing. There is a dedicated number for teachers.
The team will also this year be based at various schools and colleges throughout the county and Lancashire, so they can offer immediate help and advice as students receive their results.
