Clearing 2023

Clearing 2023 – Secure a place for September!

If you want to start a university–level course this September and have just completed a level 3 qualification, or have taken some time out and would like to pick up your studies, or want to work towards a career change, now is an ideal opportunity for you to apply to study with us!

What is Clearing?

Clearing is a great way to secure a place on a full-time university-level course for September. Full information on the clearing process can be found on the UCAS website

If you still want to apply for higher education, or if you have already applied but changed your mind about your choices,  you can use clearing to find a full-time course ready to start in September 2023. It’s not too late!

Clearing is run by UCAS and you can apply for any of our full-time courses as long as you don’t already hold an offer from another university or college.
