Make sure you have your Clearing number

If you haven't already registered and submitted an application with UCAS you'll need to do so before you can enter Clearing. UCAS will send you a welcome email, with your Clearing number and instructions on how to us UCAS Track. If you've already applied through UCAS but don't currently hold a place you'll be automatically entered into Clearing and given a Clearing number. If you have a confirmed place but have changed your mind you can self-release from your current place to be entered into Clearing.

You'll know you're in Clearing if your UCAS Track status says 'You are in Clearing' or 'Clearing has started', and you can find your Clearing number in the 'Your Choices' section of Track.

Get in touch to discuss an offer

Contact us to see if we are able to offer you a place through Clearing. We consider every applicant on their individual merits so it's always worth getting in touch and talking to us about your options.

We may need to ask you a few questions or arrange an interview to assess whether the course is a good fit for you, and then we'll let you know if we are able to offer you a place.
