University Clearing and Adjustment

Want to start university this September? It's not too late to apply. Speak to our team about Clearing, call us on 01772 830777

Join us for an Open Day this Autumn

This is your chance to get a feel for campus life, meet with tutors and students to have your questions answered and explore the outstanding facilities you will be using.

Save your place

Clearing is used by university applicants who have received their exam results but don't yet have a place at university. The Clearing process helps match applicants to university places that are yet to be filled.  

If you've exceeded the entry requirements required for your firm choice, you might be thinking about looking for an alternative course. Adjustment offers you the chance to reconsider where and what you want to study. If you've had a conditional firm choice accepted you could swap your place for one on another course that you'd prefer.

We've got it covered.

Throughout the pandemic we have been delivering a Covid safe environment for our staff and students in line with Government guidelines. From September, we plan to deliver the majority of teaching in-person on campus but, where we have learnt it works best, some of the learning will be available online too. Our online learning provides a flexible and interactive experience and gives you repeated access to material wherever possible. We look forward to welcoming our new students onto campus.

If you are deaf, hard of hearing or a sign language user, you can email bslinterpreters@uclan.ac.uk and we can arrange a video call to support you through the Clearing process.
