What is Clearing?

Clearing and Adjustment are another opportunity to find the course that's right for you.

If we have places available for the course you're interested in and you can meet our requirements, you might be able to make an application with us.

Who can apply


As soon as you have your results, you can apply for a place with us through Clearing if:

  • you have not yet applied
  • you've achieved higher grades than expected
  • your exam results are not as good as predicted

A course will only stay in Clearing for as long as places are available.


  • your results are better than expected
