Thank you to everyone who supported Clearing

A huge thank you to colleagues who have worked hard to support students.

A huge thank you and well done to our dedicated team of more than 80 staff volunteers and colleagues from academic departments across the University. They joined teams from Student Recruitment and Admissions, Global Engagement, Corporate Information and Computing Services, Corporate Communications and Accommodation and Commercial Services, to play an important role in helping thousands of prospective students talk through their options on A-Level results day.



Our call centre staff received more than 4,000 phone calls from prospective students, and this year, were able to spend more time helping applicants make the right decision about their future.

Staff in the social media hub were also busy interacting with new students, with content gaining more than 4,500 social interactions. Two new videos released on YouTube had over 3,000 views, and around 700 students joined the 2019-20 Facebook Firmers Group on A-level results day.

We’re also extremely grateful to colleagues who dedicated their time to support our applicants during our Clearing Open Day on Saturday 17 August 2019.

Around 120 applicants attended the Open Day to learn more about their courses, accommodation, and to get a feel for our university to help them make the right decision about their future

Thank you to colleagues who showed unwavering support and volunteered their time, delivering an excellent first impression and experience to new and prospective students coming to Sheffield.
