Support for New and Current Students
When is Clearing and can I apply for courses starting the next year?
We appreciate that you want to get your application in early for next year and we would love to help you do so, but unfortunately, Clearing vacancies are only available for the current year.
Clearing closes around September and the next round of Clearing will start in Spring. Please see UCAS for further details and dates.
Applications for next year will open in the first week of September.
Please have a look at the course or courses that you are interested in on our subject areas pages, some of them will have multiple start dates across the year.
You should have a look at our Open Days in order to get more information about the University and to give yourself the opportunity to learn more about the courses. Please visit our Open Days page.
Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
