Education: Your guide to course vacancies

Click to follow
THE official listings from the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (Ucas), which organises the 'clearing' process, published exclusively in the Independent and the Independent on Sunday, will help students who change their plans after this week's release of A-level results.

For the next five weeks we will be publishing details of empty places on courses. There will also be a series of features offering advice to students on subjects ranging from how to sell themselves on the phone or at an interview to new and unusual courses that they may not have considered. The next feature will appear this Sunday. The first listings will be published next Wednesday, 24 August. There will then be features and listings on Friday 26 August and on subsequent Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays until 22 September.

Don't miss a chance to enter Double Your Grant, our special competition for full-time students, which will be run in conjunction with our exclusive vacancies service. Full details will appear next Wednesday, 24 August.
