Top tips for Clearing

Check out our top tips below to help you prepare to make those calls and find the right university and course for you.

1. Do your research.

Be realistic but also ambitious – if you haven’t quite got the grades you need for your chosen course, we may still be able to offer you a place. Get in touch and talk to us about your situation to see how we can support you. See which courses are available in Clearing.

2. Get ahead of the competition.

Courses fill up fast, so get in touch as soon as you can. We can check your results and make you an offer of a place over the phone or on live chat. Call our Clearing hotline – click the Call button at the top of this page, dial 0333 733 9168 or visit the website and click on the chat link.

3. Don’t feel rushed.

Although we say to get in touch as soon as you can, make sure you’re making the right choice for you. If we’re able to offer you a place, you will have some time before you need to officially make your choice through UCAS. Give the offer some thought, revisit course information on our website, arrange a visit to one of our campuses, and get in touch if you have any further questions. Read our Clearing FAQs.
