Recruitment expected to improve as Liverpool prepares for Clearing

The number of undergraduate students who have already confirmed the University of Liverpool as their first choice for entry this September has increased by 21.4%.

With Clearing for most non-clinical subjects opening on A-Level results day this Thursday, the University is expecting to receive around 8,000 calls from students looking for places.

Around 150 University staff will be working in the Clearing Call centre, including admissions tutors, Marketing &Communications staff, student ambassadors and the Accommodation team.


Director of Marketing, Claire Brown, said: “Although we have had a fantastic year in terms of both an increase in applications and acceptances, the changes to the student number controls for entry 2015 mean that we cannot afford to be complacent.

“Many of our competitors are already advertising that they have places available in Clearing and so we expect that the competition for well qualified students from this source will be intense this year.

“In response to this we are opening-up our Call Centre at 6.30am on results Thursday and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff who are supporting us by coming into work at such an early time, as well everyone who has supported the recruitment effort this year.”

The call centre, based in the Harrison Hughes building, will be open on:

  • Thursday 13 August: 6.30am – 6.00pm
  • Friday 14 August: 9.00am – 5.00pm
  • Saturday 15 August: 10.00am – 2.00pm
  • Sunday 16 August: Closed
  • Monday 17 – Friday 21 August: 9.00am – 5.00pm
