Tens of thousands of students across the country will be looking to make the most of their university options on Tuesday 10 August, A-level Results Day. In another year of uncertainty about exams, more students than ever are expected to go through the Clearing process.  

From this September, York St John University is making a full return to in-person teaching ensuring that the new cohort of students will have a full, on campus experience. 

York St John University Vice Chancellor Professor Karen Bryan, OBE said: “Our students have missed on campus teaching during the pandemic and we’re delighted to be providing lectures and other teaching activities in person from September. Being together on campus will provide a sense of belonging that is so important for students’ wellbeing and learning and we are looking forward to welcoming all our new and returning students.” 

Clearing is growing in popularity and this year is expected to be extremely busy after another 12 months of upheaval and uncertainty about exam results. The message to prospective students is not to panic though as there are a lot of places available at numerous different universities throughout the country.  

York St John is one institution laying on extra support to help applicants. 

Matthew Taylor, Director of Marketing, Student Recruitment and Admissions at York St John University said: “The idea of applying to university can seem daunting at the best of times but after such a disrupted year for young people, we know that applicants might need extra support. Our dedicated Clearing team will be on hand to guide you through the process and answer any questions. They’ll be supported by colleagues from Accommodation, Student Life and Wellbeing as well as many Student Ambassadors who’ve been through the Clearing process themselves in the past. We can’t wait to chat to you and welcome you into the York St John community.” 

Clearing will commence on the morning of the 10 August from 8am.

York St John University will be accepting applications over the phone (01904 809700) and online.
