Call us!

Results day was a manic experience with our team in the office dealing with telephone, chat and email enquiries from 8am til 8pm! It was well worth it and we are overwhelmed with the amount of interest we had in a range of our courses that still have vacancies available! This is my second clearing, and if last year was anything to go by, I was well aware of how fast paced and exciting results day can be! This year we managed to break last year’s record of calls, receiving over 7,000 yesterday alone! We also accepted 742 chats and answered 418 emails regarding clearing! Its positive to know people are not put off by the experience of clearing and seem to be excited at the chance to secure a place at university! Although results day may seem like it came and went so quick for you guys, as well as us in the clearing room here at the University of Greenwich, we still have many vacancies available across all faculties, including extremely popular courses such as Law, Primary Education and Pharmacy.

We will still be available from 9am til 5pm, Monday to Friday from next week, happy to answer any clearing queries you may have and to assess whether we can make an application (perhaps even an offer!) for you on the course of your choice. If you have missed out on your offers from other institutions or even here at the University of Greenwich, I stress you not to be put off at all! There are still many opportunities available to you to assist you on your pathway to higher education.

There is no query we have not experienced before and no question is a silly question so feel free to spend as much time as you feel necessary talking to us to assist you in making the right decision. Even if you may feel that your UCAS points are not sufficient for you to gain access to your choice of programme, we have many HND’s and Foundation degree options available across a range of subjects that would allow you to go on to complete an undergraduate degree in the future! My best piece of advice when it comes to clearing is remain focused on what you want to achieve in the future, try not to be led astray by just wanting a place at University and therefore applying for and accepting any place on a course you do not necessarily want to study!

REMEMBER Clearing has no official “deadline” we will only stop accepting applications when the courses become full or we are advised by the academics that the start date has far been surpassed, so you still have plenty of time to give us a call or request an online chat! Stay calm, think positive, and ask questions! Good Luck and Congratulations to you all on your offers J
