University Helps To Clear Up A-level Angst

With A-level results less than a fortnight away, Coventry University is preparing to throw open its doors to would-be students uncertain about their future.

Some teenagers are bound to be disappointed about their results and will need to enter the clearing system that finds places for students who did not get their required grades for a place at university.

An open weekend will be held at Coventry University on 19 and 20 August to give students an insight into university life.

People considering taking a place at the university will be able to meet staff and students to get advice on their next move.

A special marquee will be set up outside the university’s main administration building in Bayley Lane, opposite Coventry Cathedral.

Students will be able to talk to staff from the University’s Grants and Loans Office, the Accommodation Office, and the Students’ Union.

The eight academic schools will also be represented in the marquee, to help potential students to narrow down their choices.

In each of the schools a full programme of presentations will be offered, and admissions tutors will be available to discuss the possibility of making an offer of a course.

In addition to tours of the academic schools, campus tours will also be available.

Students and their families will also be taken to see some student accommodation and some of the sights of the city.

Catering outlets at the university will also be open for meals, snacks and drinks throughout the weekend.

Cyrrhian Macrae, Director of Corporate Affairs, said:

"Over the years there has been a growing trend for prospective students and their families to want to visit the university that has made them an offer before accepting.

“That's a trend we’ve been keen to encourage. We find that once we persuade them to visit and look around the city and campus, they know they’ve made the right choice."
