If you haven’t managed to secure a place at University yet, then any applications that you make between July and September will be classed as Clearing. We realise Clearing can be quite stressful but don’t worry; our team is on hand to advise and guide you through the process and ensure you find a place on an undergraduate degree course that is right for you.
We still have places available in courses starting this September. To view our wide range of courses offered at UCLan, from Mathematics and English Language to Architecture, Journalism and Fashion, please use our course search then give our friendly team a call on our Clearing Hotline number 01772 830777 for more advice or to secure your place. When you call us, you will need your UCAS Clearing Number which you will find in UCAS Track.
If your results aren’t what you hoped or if you perhaps chose the wrong A Level subjects, instead of repeating a year at school or college, why not look at our Foundation Entry courses? By applying to one of these four-year degrees, you gain access to the full student loan funding – plus you get the university experience right from the outset.
You can choose from a wide range of courses – here is a just a selection of the subject areas available.

Tours run at 10.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm daily and there’s no need to book – simply arrive at Foster Building entrance prior to the depart time.
