UCAS: Moving into higher education
The official UCAS vacancy listings help match the grades you got with the course you want
Tuesday 07 September 1999
This is the only official national newspaper listing of vacancies. Any other lists that purport to be official should be disregarded.
The lists are compiled by UCAS from information supplied by the universities and colleges. In addition, vacancies will be available on the UCAS website (http://www.ucas.ac.uk) together with further advice relating to the Clearing procedure. There is also a vacancy service on BBC2 Ceefax pages 700-799.
Detailed Clearing instructions are sent automatically by UCAS to eligible applicants. Eligible applicants are those who have applied after 30 June 1999, those without offers from their original choices, and those who have not been offered a place after receipt of their exam results.
Vacancies are listed under subject headings. Note that these frequently do not correspond exactly with course titles. A course may appear more than once under different headings if this has been requested by the institution. It is therefore essential that applicants check details in the UCAS Handbook 1999 or on the UCAS website.
Available courses are referred to by their four-character course code. Course codes starting with a letter are degree or DipHE courses; those starting with a number are HND courses. A letter following the course code represents the campus code. The numbers in brackets, where they appear, indicate the minimum A/AS-level points score requirement.
Calculate your A/AS-level points as follows:
A-levels - Grade A, 10 points; B, eight points; C, six points; D, four points; E, two points.
AS-levels - Grade A, five points; B, four points; C, three points; D, two points: E, one point.
If no points score is indicated, applicants are advised to contact institutions regarding minimum entrance requirements. The names used in the listing correspond to those found in the UCAS Handbook 1999. Note that certain institutions have changed their names for 2000 entry.
New applicants need to complete a UCAS application form. This can be obtained from their school or college, local careers office or from UCAS itself (01242 223707).
If you have any difficulty with your Clearing application, contact UCAS on 01242 227788.
Applicants for the Clearing system must be in possession of their Clearing entry form before they can obtain a place on any of the courses listed in these pages.
