The Independent Online
The information on the following pages is the most up-to-date listing available of full-time and sandwich course vacancies remaining in the UK universities and colleges of higher education. The institutions are members of the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

The lists are compiled by UCAS from information supplied by the institutions, and are published for the benefit of applicants in Clearing. They are the only official lists of vacancies published on behalf of the universities and colleges in the press. Detailed Clearing instructions are sent automatically by UCAS to eligible applicants: those who have applied after 30 June 1995, those without offers from their original choices, and those who have not been offered a place after receipt of their results.

Vacancies are listed under subject headings; these frequently do not correspond exactly with course titles. A course may appear more than once if it contains a major element of all subjects under which it appears. It is therefore essential that applicants check details in the UCAS Handbook 1995 Entry. Course codes starting with a letter are degree or DipHE courses; those starting with a number are HND courses. This information is available only from the Independent or the Independent on Sunday, or in schools and careers offices via Ecctis 2000.

New applicants need an application form from their school or college, local careers office, or UCAS. UCAS can be contacted on 01242 227788 if you have any difficulty with your Clearing application.

Applicants must be in possession of their Clearing Entry Form before they can obtain a place on any of these courses. A letter following the course code represents the campus code. Course details and titles must be checked against the entries in the 1995 UCAS Handbook.

The number in brackets indicates the minimum points score requirement. Calculate your points as follows (counting a maximum of three A-levels) - A-levels: Grade A 10 points, B 8, C 6, D 4, E 2; AS-level: Grade A 5 points, B 4, C 3, D 2, E 1.

If no point score is indicated, applicants are advised to contact institutions directly regarding minimum entrance requirements. Applicants with other qualifications must check minimum requirements with the university or college itself.(Listings omitted)
