Over £1billion is being invested in exciting projects across Sunderland, from the ‘Northern Spire’, an iconic new bridge across the River Wear and a vibrant Cultural Quarter near City Campus, to attractive public space and seafront landscaping.

What is Clearing and who is it for?

Clearing is a process where students who have not yet found a university place via UCAS can search for vacancies. It is organised through UCAS and it is the final opportunity to find a place at university starting in 2018. For more detailed information, please see the UCAS website.

Clearing is for:

  • Anyone who hasn’t achieved the grades required and who hasn’t been accepted for their first or second choice university
  • Anyone who has not yet applied for university but wants to enrol on a course in September 2018
  • Anyone who has not yet received any offers for a place at a university

If you have achieved better grades than you expected and want to apply for another course and/or university, you can change your choice through Adjustment.
