We’ve saved Clearing places on some of our courses. What’s next? Choose from the options below to start your life-changing journey.

Clearing Pop In Thursday 16 August

If you’d like to discuss starting university here in September 2018 or already have an offer, why not pop in and chat to us at our Clearing event on Thursday 16th August? Our team will be on hand in the Gateway at City Campus (SR1 3SD) from 1 – 6.30pm, and you can chat to an academic about your course; find out about any scholarships that you can apply for, and have a look around the campus you will be studying at. We'll also have someone on hand to give you information about accommodation.

No need to register, just pop in! Can’t make this date? Register for our main University Open Day on Saturday 18 August.

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 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.
