Awaken your inner animal

Find your tribe and who you can really be at the University of Westminster. Clearing is the opportunity for you to find your place at university if you haven’t already secured one or if you would like to change to another course. Our Clearing applications officially open on 1 July but you can still apply for a place with us now by following our guidance below.

If you're waiting for your exam results

If you’re waiting for your exam results this year, you’ll need to wait for your grades on Thursday 15 August before applying through Clearing. However, you can get prepared now.

If you've applied to university but are not holding any offers of a place

If you’ve already applied to university via UCAS and have used all of your five choices but are not holding any offers, you can apply via UCAS Extra. If Extra is open to you it will show on your account when you log in to your UCAS Track. Find out more on the UCAS website.

Clearing FAQs

Clearing is part of the UCAS application process. It helps students who have not yet secured a university place to find and apply for a course.

You can apply through Clearing from 1 July if you’ve already applied through UCAS and you do not hold any offers. You may also use Clearing if:

  • you've changed your mind since first choosing your firm and insurance choices on UCAS
  • you are not holding any offers when you get your results
  • you’ve started the university application process later than 30 June 2019

Clearing applications open on 1 July and close in September.

You can apply through Clearing from 1 July. Start by researching to find the right course for you. Search our courses now to get prepared.

If you already have your results, you can still apply until 6pm on 30 June. Applications received after this date will be entered into Clearing. 

If you’re waiting for your results on 15 August 2019, call us as soon as you have them. Make sure you have all your qualifications to hand, including your GCSE results. It’s also helpful to have your UCAS number and a pen and paper to take any notes.

If you meet our entry requirements and we can offer you a place, we’ll let you know during the phone conversation. You’ll receive formal confirmation via email with a deadline for confirming your acceptance of the place offered to you.

If you call us on results day and we offer you a place, you then need to log on to UCAS Track. You will be able to do this from 3pm on Thursday 15 August.

  1. Click ‘Add Clearing choice’ and fill in the course details before the deadline you were given in your email. This confirms that you are accepting the offer from us.
  2. When we’ve verified your results, we’ll formally confirm your place via email. You’ll also receive official confirmation from UCAS and see details of your place on UCAS Track. If your course requires a portfolio, we’ll need to assess this before confirming your offer. Further details will be provided in your offer letter.

We may need to contact you to ask you to send in your results or your portfolio so it can be assessed. When you’ve received your confirmation you are ready to enrol with us. Details about when and where to enrol and starting your course will follow via email.
