The University has 800 places available, but today announced that a number of full-time courses are already full, although there are plenty of opportunities in part-time study.
The University received over 500 extra places from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) for 2010 entry. Of these, 355 are in subjects including Computing, Engineering, and Art and Design, and 165 are for Dance, Drama and Music subjects.
Other courses with spaces remaining include Social Sciences, Business, Linguistics and Interpreting and some Applied Sciences. For a full list, visit www.wlv.ac.uk/clearing
Academic Registrar Paul Travill advised prospective students to contact the University as soon as possible if they are wishing to apply to study through Clearing.
He said: “We know that Clearing is a difficult and confusing time for a lot of applicants. We have been running an online Clearing clinic in the run up to A-level results day, and queries have ranged from whether we have spaces on specific courses to whether it is too late to apply.
“We will be continuing the live chat throughout Clearing, and 65 people have been answering our Clearing hotline from 7am today to provide help and explain the options available, depending on the students’ qualifications.
“The most important thing is for students to contact us as soon as possible as places are limited this year.”
The Clearing hotline number - 0800 953 3222 – opened at 7am today, Thursday 19 August 2010. An online Clearing Clinic at www.wlv.ac.uk/clearing offering advice and support to students launched on Monday, and continues throughout Clearing.
In addition, students can come along to the University’s Open Day on Saturday, 21 August 2010 to meet lecturers and current students, tour the facilities and talk through their options with expert advisors. The open day will take place at Wolverhampton City and Walsall Campuses from 10am until 3pm.
Full details of the dates and times of the University’s Clearing activities are available at www.wlv.ac.uk/clearing
