No places left after “unprecedented” Clearing


As of 5pm today (Friday), there were no places left for full-time courses for entry in September.

Bosses are monitoring the situation, and may reopen with some more places on Monday, depending on the level of successful completed applications.

The Clearing hotline will not be in use on Saturday, and staff who had been due to be answering calls have been drafted in to help at the Open Day from 10am to 3pm at Wolverhampton and Walsall Campuses.

Paul Travill, Academic Registrar, said: “We processed the last few offers this afternoon (Friday). However, next week we may have some more places, so would advise people who are still looking for a place at university to check back on our website

“We are expecting large numbers of people at our Open Day on Saturday, so have increased the numbers of staff available to help by moving them from the phone lines to be there in person.

“The level of demand for places has been unprecedented this year. Our advice for students who not been successful this year is to be flexible and look at part-time study or reapplying for 2011.”

Almost 240 people logged on to a live Clearing clinic between Monday and Thursday, with 187 visiting on Thursday alone.
