Dear colleagues,

Thursday 15 August is A-level results day. Colleagues across the University have been working hard over the past few months to ensure we secure our next cohort of talented undergraduate students.

To help respond quickly to enquiries from both our firm and insurance offer holders – as well as prospective students wishing to join the University through Clearing or Adjustment this year – we are running a single hotline with call routing to take calls from all applicants and offer-holders. The Clearing, Adjustment and Confirmation hotline can be reached on 0118 402 0900 and will be operational at these times:

  • Thursday 15 August – 07:30-18:00
  • Friday 16 August – 08:00-17:00
  • Saturday 17 August – 10:00-14:00
  • Monday 19 August onwards –09:00-17:00

Volunteers from different parts of the University are supporting the Clearing process, which will be managed from the first floor of the newly refurbished Library.

You can find more information and frequently-asked questions about Adjustment and Clearing at

If you receive any calls related to Clearing, please redirect these to the Clearing, Adjustment and Confirmation hotline. It can be an anxious time for parents and they will appreciate any support we can offer them.

All students offered a place at the University through the Clearing or Adjustment process will be given the opportunity to attend an invitation-only Visit Day on Friday 16 August at 3Sixty, RUSU. The session will provide visitors an opportunity to speak with academic colleagues and see our wonderful campuses and facilities. Please direct all visitors to 3Sixty, RUSU on Friday 16 August.

Your support for this crucial recruitment and conversion activity is very important. Please make our guests feel welcome and point them in the right direction.

Thank you in advance to everyone involved in this very busy and critical time for the University.

Kind regards,


Professor Robert Van de Noort
