UCAS Clearing - BA (Hons)

If you have already made an application to UCAS for a degree course and you are still unplaced or undecided, Clearing can be a very straightforward way of getting onto one of our degrees.  Students can find themselves in Clearing for lots of valid reasons:
  • You might not have received any offers if you applied to UCAS after 30 June
  • You didn't receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • Your exam results weren't as expected, and you didn't meet the conditions of your offers
  • Your circumstances have changed and you are only just thinking about studying at degree level

If you haven't applied to UCAS yet - don't worry, just give us a call and we'll talk you through the process!
