Clearing

Sunderland is a place that's bursting with opportunity; this could be the moment it all falls into place.

Please note that Clearing 2018 is now closed. 

Open Days

If you’d like to discuss starting university or already have an offer, why not come along to one of our Open Days? You'll be able to find out more about the subject you’re interested in by speaking to academic staff and attending subject specific talks, go on a tour of our accommodation and look around the campus. You'll also be able to attend talks about student finance and UCAS.

Our Integrated Foundation Year degrees

It's never too late to start your life-changing journey. Have you missed out on achieving the entry qualifications for university? Are you thinking about returning to study but feel that a university degree is beyond your reach? Well think again!

We have just what you're looking for: a four-year degree route incorporating a special Foundation Year to help you gain the essential study skills and subject knowledge needed for an honours degree. Find out more about our Integrated Foundation Year courses.

What is Clearing and who is it for?

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 2019
  • 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.

To help with your study costs, we have a great range of incentives and scholarships from free accommodation and travel to cash scholarships, reduced tuition fees and book packages.
