University of Cumbria Clearing hotline opens tomorrow

The University of Cumbria opens its Clearing hotline tomorrow (Thursday 15 August) to support students receiving their A Level results.

The call centre opens at 7.00am and will be manned by trained university staff and current students who can offer advice to students on their options.

Guidance will be offered around availability of courses, eligibility, interviews, course details and signposting to other support services.

The university has recruited very well for the 2013/14 year but there are still some spaces left on a range of courses for students who meet the entry requirements.

These limited places are on courses in subject areas including Primary Teaching, Business, Sport, Arts, Outdoors Studies, Policing, Social Work, Psychology, and English.

Helen Fleming, Director of Marketing and Recruitment, 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 this daunting process.”

Course vacancies will be kept up to date on the university website ( and you can follow the university on Twitter (@Uocrecruitment) or Facebook (University of Cumbria) throughout the day.

A number of cash scholarships are also still available. To find out about eligibility visit

The Clearing call centre number (08080 024 024) will be open from 7.00am-7.00pm on Thursday 15 and Friday 16 August, 9.00am-5.00pm on Saturday 17 August and Sunday 18 August, and 9.00am-5.00pm weekdays from Monday 19 August.
