Why do I need to call before referring myself?

During Clearing you can only apply to one university course at a time. Calling ensures that you know whether a course is available and whether you are eligible for a place.

The Clearing Team will be able to advise you on your current circumstance as well as any information about courses that have capacity limits, specific entry requirements, portfolios, or interviews for example.

If you meet the course entry requirements, you can get an offer while you’re on the phone. If you’re in UCAS, the Clearing Team will help you through the referral process.

Find out more at our Clearing webpage.

Call 0808 281 1111 to talk through your options.

You can visit one of our Clearing Study Advice Sessions 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 to book a Clearing Study Advice Session.

You can also chat with our staff directly via our direct messaging service.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Clearing Study Advice Sessions to find out more and speak with the team.
