Clearing 2021

Do something you love this autumn

Looking to start university this autumn? We can help...

Last year we helped hundreds of people just like you find a place on a full-time undergraduate degree through Clearing – and our admissions team is here again to help you through the process.

What is Clearing? If you’re from the UK or EU, Clearing is a service that can help you find a place on one of our full-time undergraduate courses starting in September.

If you’re an international student, you will need to apply direct from your chosen course page. The same applies if you're wanting to study part-time. Find out more about applying as an international student or read answers to other common questions about Clearing in our frequently asked questions

Applying over the phone? Check our hotline opening hours. Remember, you can apply online at any time.

Our teaching plans for autumn 2021

We are planning to return to our usual ways of teaching this autumn including on-campus activities for your course. However, it's still unclear what the government requirements on social distancing and other restrictions might be, so please keep an eye on our Covid-19 pages for further updates as we get closer to the start of the autumn term.
