Step 4 - Call Us

  • Call the clearing hotline on 0300 323 1828 to speak to our Registry team. Lines are open from 8am to 8pm on Thursday and Friday, 13 and 14 August, and in most cases, we will be able to make an ‘on the spot’ decision on whether we can offer you a place. You will also have an opportunity to speak to the admissions tutor for your chosen course to find out more about studying at UWTSD.
  • If you are made an offer of a place on the phone, we will send you an email confirming the details, and giving a deadline for you to make a decision.
  • If you'd like to find out more before making your decision, we have online taster sessions and virtual open days planned.

Step 5 - Confirm your acceptance

  • To accept our offer you will need to log in to UCAS Track and enter the details as a clearing choice on your profile by the deadline we gave you.
  • Once we have processed your application and confirmed that you have met any conditions we will then confirm your place and it will appear in your track profile as ‘Unconditional’.
