Teesside University is hosting a bespoke online chat for late Clearing applicants to find out more about the range of courses available.

It takes place from 11.00am to 1.00pm on Wednesday 31 August and you can get involved on the day by visiting www.tees.ac.uk/clearing.

In the meantime, students can still ring the University’s Clearing hotline on 0800 952 0226.

Dave Hudson, Deputy Director of External Relations at Teesside University, said: “We would like to reassure applicants and their parents that it is not too late to apply for a university place.

“We know that students are, quite rightly, taking more time to make their final decisions regarding university. It is a big decision which should be carefully considered.  There are still a number of students making choices and our message is simply not to panic – you can still come to Teesside University through Clearing.

“The online chat we are hosting is just one of many initiatives we have to provide students with as much choice and information as possible about their future study opportunities.”

Teesside University has a range of funding packages available to new full-time undergraduate students starting this September, including the £500 Teesside Kickstart award to support students in their first year.  It has also been rated above the national average for UK student satisfaction in the 2016 National Student Survey.

In addition, the University has invested over a £260m in its campus in recent years as part of its commitment to create the best possible student and learning experience.
