Frequently Asked Questions

Clearing is another opportunity to secure a place at university if you haven't already, Clearing opens on UCAS from 5 July 2024 and runs through until September. During Clearing, you can apply directly to a university rather than via UCAS. You can apply directly to us if:

  • You decided to apply for a course after 30 June
  • You applied to UCAS before the end of June but didn't accept or receive any offers
  • Didn’t meet the conditions of the offers you received
  • Changed your mind about where you would like to go to university (after declining your place on UCAS and releasing yourself into Clearing).

You can call our Application Hotline on +44 (0)1473 338352 to speak to one of our Admissions Advisers. Lines are open 9.00am–5.00pm (Monday to Thursday) and 9.00am–4.45pm (Friday). 

We’ll take a few basic details from you, such as your contact information and your qualifications. We'll then advise if we can consider you for the course you’re interested in.

Sometimes, we’ll even be able to make you an informal offer during the call.

For some courses we may need further information from you such as a portfolio or you may be required to attend an interview.

Before you call, have the following ready:

  • Your UCAS ID and clearing number (if you applied through UCAS earlier in the cycle)
  • Your qualifications and results (make sure you know the full title of your qualifications)
  • Up-to-date contact details 

Alternatively, complete our online application form (open from 5 July 2024) and we’ll review your details and be in touch soon with a decision.

Course vacancies will be listed in the or you can search for your course in our Course Finder.

The entry requirements for courses can change in Clearing. We recommend that you call our Application Hotline on 01473 338352 to speak to one of our Admissions Advisers – we may still have a course space available to you.
