Teesside University offers Clearing support
Teesside University can offer advice and support to students still looking to secure a place in higher education.
Rob Callaghan who came to Teesside University through Clearing
Advice on making a late application and how to enquire about places is now available as students prepare to receive their A-levels results on August 16.
Courses which still have limited places available can be viewed on the Teesside University website at www.tees.ac.uk/clearing along with advice on how to apply and answers to many frequently asked questions.
This year for the first time there is an online interactive feature which allows prospective students to ask questions about the late application and Clearing processes either directly on the University website or on Facebook. Answers posted will feed through to both communication channels to reach as many enquirers as possible in a responsive forum.
General enquiries about courses can also be made on 01642 384228 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
A free helpline will also be available on 0800 9520 226 from Monday 13 August.

David Hudson, Assistant Director in Marketing & Student Recruitment, said: 'The University has many ways in which we can help students making late applications.
'Our advice is, as always, not to panic and to get in touch with us – we can help students and their parents with queries and ensure they get expert advice.'
Recognised for the quality of its student experience and investment made in the students learning environment, Teesside University has an on-going commitment to ensuring graduates have the skills needed for employment through their studies, work placements and graduate internship packages.
