Clearing the way to university

Home / Student experience / Discover Sunderland blog / Preparing for university / Clearing the way to university

Clearing can be a fantastic opportunity to join a university you might not have considered before, or change your mind about the course you want to study. Joining us in Sunderland is easy, here’s how:

Give us a call

You could call our Clearing Helpline to explore your options and discuss your future. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will answer the phone ready with information about our available courses. For many of our courses, if you meet the entry criteria, you’ll be made an offer right-away over the phone, and you’ll be able to add us as your Clearing choice in UCAS.

Apply online

Not a fan of phone calls? No problem, you could use our Clearing self-apply form instead. Make sure you have all the relevant information you need, including personal details (such as name and address) and the qualifications you’re going to use as part of your application.

Visit us

If you wanted to look around campus or speak to someone in person about your application, we usually offer drop-in sessions where our team are on hand to support you and answer any questions you may have.

There are also great opportunities during the Clearing period to visit us at an Open Day. See the campus, speak to staff and students, and learn more about us before you start your course.
