The University of Wolverhampton set to receive thousands
of calls from prospective students receiving their A-level results
Wolverhampton is one of the universities taking extra students
following the Government’s recent announcement of additional places
in science, technology, engineering and business subjects.
The University has 201 extra places available through the
Government’s New Industry, New Jobs policy. Students can apply via
the normal route of Clearing on the University’s
hotline number - 0800 953 3222*.
Around 60 people have been staffing the phones since 7am this
morning, and an online chat service for students has been live
since midnight via the University’s website – www.wlv.ac.uk
Paul Travill, Academic Registrar, said: “We have already reached
our targets for most of our teacher training, nursing and social
work courses. We expect to recruit around 1,000 students on a range
of courses through the Clearing process.
“We would encourage students who are interested in a range of
subjects to call our hotline number, where staff will be on hand to
offer advice. As well as students leaving school and college, we
can also offer a range of study options to applicants who are
considering entering higher education this year as a result of the
local employment situation.”
The number of home and EU applicants that have already accepted
places at the University of Wolverhampton via UCAS is up by about
30% compared to last year.
In 2008 the University of Wolverhampton received over 3,200
calls on the first day of Clearing and recruited over 1,500
students through the Clearing process.
21% of accepted places are from mature students over the age of
25, which is an increase of 1% over last year.
*if you are calling from a mobile phone you may incur a charge.
