The University of East Anglia, Norwich University College of the Arts, City College Norwich and University Campus Suffolk both have some places left and are talking to learners through the clearing and adjustment processes.
A UEA spokesman said the Norwich campus had a limited number of spaces on courses including philosophy, law, chemistry, computing, and in the school of film, television and media studies.
She added: “All students coming to us via clearing and adjustment will be guaranteed university accommodation.”
The number of applications to Nuca were particularly high this year but principal John Last said there was still an opportunity to find a place through clearing. UCS has already been busy so far today taking calls from students keen to take up a place on its business, arts, humanities, social science and health courses.
A spokesman said: “We’re particularly keen to hear from potential science students who perhaps missed the grades they required or are returning to study after a break. Our science, nutrition and sport programmes offer a four year route with lower entry requirements and a generous, non-repayable bursary of £8,000.
“We have fantastic science facilities including our £21m James Hehir Building which will be open for tours and demonstrations at our open day this Saturday, August 18.”
City College Norwich said it too had some places available on a variety of degree and higher education courses.
