What is Clearing?

Clearing is part of the UCAS application process that helps students find and apply for a university place if they haven't already secured one.

If you're an EU or international student looking to start an undergraduate course with us this September, you may be able to get a place through Clearing.

During Clearing, we advertise our courses that have places available. In some subjects we may consider applicants who have achieved slightly lower grades than our standard entry requirements.

Call us now now if you have already found your course:

Opening hours:

  • Thursday 13 August, 8am–7pm
  • Friday 14 August, 8am–6pm
  • Saturday 15 August, 10am–4pm
  • Monday 17 to Friday 21 August, 9am–6pm
  • Monday 24 to Friday 28 August, 9am–5pm

Clearing is open now for anyone who has received their results. As long as you aren’t currently holding an offer in UCAS you can apply for a programme with us.

Submit your Clearing form today, don’t wait for the phone lines to open in August. That is when UK A level students receive their results and will be very busy.

We are aware that some EU students may be considering deferring their studies in the UK due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. However, there may be implications for fees, funding and visas for students choosing to defer.

The announcement by the UK Government on 23 June 2020 makes it clear that students who defer their offer for study to September 2021 will no longer be eligible for a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England. It is also possible that fee levels for EU students for September 2021 will need to be reviewed, and may be brought in line with the higher fees for overseas students.

Additionally, based on current guidance, students travelling on an EU or EEA passport and arriving in the UK from 1 January 2021 may need to apply for immigration permission (eg a visa) to come to the UK under a category of the immigration rules which are in place at that time.

We therefore strongly urge EU students to fully investigate and understand the potential implications of deferring before making a decision.
