School and college leavers are signing up for Priority Clearing at the University of Greenwich. They will be at the front of the queue for a university place when A-level results are announced on Thursday 17 August.

Greenwich's team of specialist advisers is also currently working with non A-level students who have already received their summer examination grades.

Signing up online is simple. The process makes sure all potential applicants have their essential details recorded, and that they are ready to take advantage of the Priority Clearing hotline as soon as exam grades are made available.

That phone call will give them a key time advantage in applying for a degree course at one of the university's three campuses at Greenwich, Avery Hill and Chatham Maritime. They will also receive expert advice on courses, appropriate to their exam results, to meet their career ambitions.

"Clearing is the last chance to apply for a university place this autumn and Priority Clearing gives people a huge head-start during what can be a very stressful time," says Claire Chalmers, Head of UK Student Recruitment.

"All our Priority Clearing applicants will feel confident that they have the right information to apply. They will have direct access to a trained advisor waiting to support them in finding the right course to match their aspirations."

Clearing is ideal for school and college leavers whose results are not what they expected, who have changed their minds about the subjects they want to study at university, or who did not apply by the main UCAS cycle deadlines.

The website's LiveChat service, with a trained, expert adviser, will also help with any Clearing or university-related questions.
