Waiting for results day?

At Coventry University we like to give you plenty of time to discover which of our courses have spaces still available for September 2017. This is why we've already published our Clearing courses listing.

After you've browsed the list, here are three things you can do now to make sure you're ready for A-level results day (17th August).

Make a shortlist

It's a good idea to make a shortlist of courses that you are interested in. Make sure there are Clearing places available using our course list. In some areas we offer quite a few courses around one topic or area of interest and you can choose to study at one of five locations too. 

Compare us to other unis

Once you have found a course (or a couple if you've followed our advice in step 1!), it's probably a good idea to compare us to other universities you may be considering. At Coventry University we're pretty proud of the fact that we've just be given a gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework and we're also the 12th best university in the UK according to The Guardian.

Sign up for updates!

We regularly update our Clearing pages, from telling you about last minute opportunities to visit us, to giving you tips to keep your mind off dreaded results days. You can also sign up to our mailing listing to receive hints and tips on how to survive Clearing. Whatever piece of advice you need, we recommend checking back weekly to see our latest updates.
