Cumbria university offers places, bursaries and advice

The University of Cumbria says it has limited places available on a range of degree courses for A-level students who think they may need to go through clearing.

The university says a number of bursaries are also available for those who qualify for financial help.

Subject areas with places still available for undergraduate courses for those who meet the entry requirements include teaching, sport, English, business, arts, performance, applied psychology, forensics and social work.

A team of 25 staff and student experts are manning Cumbria University’s clearing hotline today.

Gill Haigh, director of marketing and recruitment at Cumbria University, said:“Results day is a stressful time for students and parents, so if things haven’t gone to plan it is important to remain calm and contact our call centre for guidance or support.

“We have a large team of staff and student ambassadors to help you through the process.”

Vacancies will be kept up to date throughout the day on the university website or via its Twitter feed.

Clearing is the process where students who did not get the exam results they needed to get into their first-choice university can snap up a place elsewhere.

Students are urged not to panic and be prepared for the clearing process.

They are urged to check their Ucas track system to see if they have been granted a place at their chosen university. Even if they miss their grades, some may still secure a place.

They are also encouraged to think about whether they are happy to take up their insurance place. Students are obliged to accept these unless they are asked to be released. Then, to go through clearing, students should check the Ucas website for vacancies and call the universities they are interested in going to.

Cumbria University’s clearing call centre number is 08081 787373.
