Students who have already received their vocational results and are looking for a university place can beat the rush and apply now.
The University of Northampton’s Clearing process is now open, allowing those who have received their BTEC results, plus potential mature students, to secure their place on a full-time undergraduate course in September.
“Clearing is traditionally associated with mid-August’s A-level results day, when thousands who are without an offer of a degree course have the chance to find a university place for the new academic year,” said the University’s Head of Admissions, Antony Bounds.
“But, by launching Clearing earlier, the University is helping those who already have their results – and potential mature students – to beat the rush and secure their place.”
Leanne Town, pictured, successfully applied for a degree course at the University through Clearing in 2010 as a mature student.
After graduating with a first-class honours degree in Web Design and Marketing in 2013, Leanne then completed a master’s degree at the University. Fast forward to today, and she is celebrating a year in the job with Overstone-based digital marketing agency, Star Digital.
She said: “Clearing was such a straightforward process and I received so much advice.
“The staff were extremely helpful and ensured everything worked out smoothly – I knew I could rely on them to guide me through every step.
“I don’t remember being stressed at all, either. I think the whole process was quite simple. If you apply for Clearing, just make sure you start the process as soon as possible.”
Would-be students are also invited to attend the University’s Open Day, which takes place on Saturday 15 August, between 9am and 3.30pm.
