Clearing campaign up and running for results

The University of Wolverhampton is gearing up for Clearing with new website pages and an advertising campaign outlining courses which still have spaces available.

Clearing offers degree applicants an alternative route for enrolling on a University course when they get their examination results.

Students who are studying for BTEC and Access qualifications have started to get exam results and A Level students will receive their results on Thursday 15th August 2019.

The University’s “Discover what you’re made of…” advertising campaign is running throughout August, with radio, press and billboard adverts across the Black Country, Shropshire, Stafford and the wider West Midlands.

The new Clearing website pages give detailed information about what courses are available and how students can apply when they receive their results.

Rebecca Hollington, Head of UK Recruitment at the University of Wolverhampton, said: “I think the most important message for students is to take their time and think through their options. There is always a sense of urgency around clearing, but students need to not let this impact on their decision. They have time.”

Andrew Rigby, a Multimedia Journalism degree student who joined the University in 2016 and is due to graduate this September, said: “If I want others to take anything from my story, it’s that even when things don’t go your way and it looks like nothing good is coming, pick yourself up and keep going until you get where you want to be.

“Clearing has literally kept my aspirations of becoming a sports’ journalist on track and living and studying in Wolverhampton makes it much better. So be prepared for your results to not go the way you want because applying for clearing might actually land you in a much better place.”

For anyone who already has their results, applications for courses can be started now through our Clearing website.  Call the Clearing Hotline on 01902 518585 or contact us through our Social Media channels:

Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Anyone applying for a course through Clearing can register their interest and arrange a phone call with the University on results day on Thursday 15th August or visit our next Open Day on Saturday 17th August for more information.
