Top tips for Clearing

  • Give Hull a call, they want to talk to you Whether or not you’ve already got your results, you can talk through the course you’re interested in and you may get a verbal offer there and then.
  • Visit the beautiful campus If possible, come and see where you might be studying, living and working. Hull offers a travel grant of up to £100 for any student wanting to visit the campus during Clearing (terms and conditions apply – see the university website for further details).
  • Do your research and be prepared On Results Day, have your details to hand along with any questions you want to ask. Make notes during the call so you have all the information you need, and most of all, don’t feel panicked – Hull is there to help you make the right choices.


Hull makes sure that all first-year students have a place in halls or student housing. If you’re a new, full-time unaccompanied student, and you apply for accommodation by 1 September in the year you wish to start, Hull guarantees you a room that's owned, in partnership, managed or directed by the university.
