Clearing is not the only choice for students this week – advice line for international universities launched
A level exam results are published in England, Wales and Northern Ireland tomorrow (Thursday 16 August). While most students will be pleased with their grades and have a university place waiting for them in September, others will be disappointed not to have reached the standard required for their chosen course or will have changed their mind about choice of course or university.
The increase in university fees this year has seen more British students looking abroad for their university education, with universities in the Netherlands the main beneficaries. Even at this late stage, there are still opportunities for British students to study aboard in the Netherlands and other countries around the world.
A Star Future, an advisory service for British schools and students, has compiled a list of overseas courses known to have vacancies at this stage and will be updating it regularly over the next two weeks. Mark Huntington, Managing Director of A Star Future notes that although many British students have planned in advance to study at university overseas, it is possible to find a place in a relatively short period of time, and that some international universities are offering financial incentives to British students. He adds "This year we have taken the step of putting an advice line in place to assist students who wish to look at international universities."
Potential students will find courses in subjects such as business, law, medicine, journalism and English literature, making study at some of Europe and Australia's leading universities an attractive option.
Check out the full list of available vacancies on the news page of the A Star Future website or telephone their advice line for international university applications on 020 3586 4025.
