Clearing hotlines go live
(16 August 2004)
Admissions staff at the University of Durham are all geared up for the rush of applications and enquiries expected following the publication of A-Level results this Thursday (19th August).
Hundreds of students are expected to contact the University once they have received their results for further advice. The continuing popularity of the University of Durham means that pressure for places remains high and that the number of vacancies is very small.
Matthew Andrews, Head of Undergraduate Admissions said: "We have a small number of vacancies which are based at the University's Queen's Campus in Stockton. Applicants are encouraged to call early to avoid disappointment and to discuss their options with trained staff who will guide them through the admissions process."
