The University of Buckingham has broken its clearing record this year, making 40 per cent more offers to students through clearing than the same time last year.

A fully trained team were on hand to deal with record numbers of calls over the first few days of clearing and phones still remain busy.

Humanities and social science subjects have proven most popular with well qualified applicants seeking places.  Acceptances have increased by 40 per cent and applications to the university business school have more than doubled this year.  Overall there has been a rise in the region of 60 per cent. 

The independent University of Buckingham was the first UK university to condense the academic content of a standard three-year degree into a two-year programme, running over four terms per year. By offering 36 teaching weeks per year tutors at Buckingham can fit in the same amount of teaching in two years as other universities spread across three.

The University of Buckingham offers students seeking a place through clearing the flexibility to take a two-year degree starting in January.

Debbie Millns, marketing manager at the University of Buckingham said: “Buckingham is ideally placed to offer a real alternative to those seeking a place through clearing.

“While our September entry is almost full we can offer a January start to those still looking for places.”

She added: “Students can take a short break to work or travel and join us in January 2012 and still graduate in December 2013”.
