Clearing Frequently Asked Questions

Students Working


Firstly, don’t panic!  Check your UCAS Track and if you are eligible for clearing you can look for another course. Check out the list of courses we have available in clearing and give us a call on 0300 323 1828  to find out if we are able to offer you a place.

Firstly, please Log In to UCAS Track to check your status.  Occasionally we are able to accept students who don’t quite achieve the grades they are hoping for, or we are able to make a ‘changed course offer’ which means we can offer you a place on an alternative course.  If your status shows as ‘unconditional’ your place is confirmed, congratulations!  If you are unsure what your status means or have questions, please call us on 0300 323 1828.

It’s not too late to apply, please contact us on 0300 323 1828 to find out if there are places available on your preferred course, and our team will guide you through the process of applying via UCAS during clearing.
