Hi,
As far as I am aware Criminology is currently in Clearing - although it is a popular course so may fill up quickly.
I suggest you visit our website today to check the entry requirements so you know what you need to get to be considered through clearing and are prepared for tomorrow morning.
I hope that helps, but please get back in touch if you have any more questions!

Okay thanks, I already have it as my insurance choice. So if things get really bad tomorrow and I miss my insurance choice as well then I still have a chance of getting in? (hopefully it wont come to that but just considering all the possibilities)

Hi again,
Unfortunately if you do not get in with the grades you get as an insurance choice, it is unlikely you will get in through Clearing. However it is worth calling up the hotline if this happens as you may be able to get onto a similar course or a joint honours course with Criminology. My main advice is to do as much preparation tonight so you have the numbers/ websites ready to call as soon as you get your results. http://www.kingston.ac.uk/undergradu...rses/clearing/

I hope this is all hypothetical though - and you get your grades. Good luck and let me know how you get on!

Hi,
Unfortunately if you do not get offered a place when you are holding us as insurance because things have gone badly - then you won't get a place through clearing for the same course. You may be able to apply for a different course or Criminology as a joint honours - but this will be dependent on your grades meeting the tariff score set out in our entry requirements.

Hopefully this is all hypothetical though and you get the grades you need. My top tip would be to spend today preparing yourself. Check university websites to see if there are any courses you might be interested in - and make a note of (or bookmark) the hotline numbers and course pages. That way, if things don't go according to plan, you will have everything ready and to hand.

Good luck and let me know how you get on!

Thanks, I'd have thought that if a uni has clearing spaces, it would be more lenient in accepting those who have missed an offer? or is that not the case? say for example you miss an offer by 20 ucas points and the uni has extra spaces available?

Hi, I'm Lauren, Kerrie's colleague at Kingston Uni

If you have missed your Criminology offer by 20 points then it is worth giving our Clearing hotline a call as there may well be some joint honours that you will be able to get onto. Please call our hotline on 0844 842 9599 and for further information visit our website www.kingston.ac.uk

Good luck

Lauren

Thanks, is there a car park close to the uni that i can use? I know that the uni itself does not have a car park.. I also have another question, is it possible for me to resit an A2 module whilst at Kingston? I narrowly missed B grades

Parking is limited and you may have to use one of the public pay-and-display car parks nearby, which include:
  • The Bittoms – virtually opposite the Penryhn Road campus;
  • The Rose – to reach the Penrhyn Road campus from The Rose car park, walk up Kingston Hall Road, turn right at the roundabout and walk along Penrhyn Road; and
  • Eden Walk – a five- to 10-minute walk from the Penrhyn Road campus.
For full details of public car parking in Kingston, please visit www.kingston.gov.uk.

Study for your A2 will depend on your course timetable and how this may affect your course. You will need to discuss this with your course tutor.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,

Shazia
