If you are accepted for a Full Time course, submit your Clearing Application to UCAS

Your application will then be forwarded to us from UCAS and we can then make an official decision.
Please note that some courses will expect you to attend an interview.

Do I need to apply to UCAS to be eligible for Clearing?
If you are applying for a Full Time course then you will need to apply to UCAS, assuming that you have not already done so.
You can apply to UCAS here: www.ucas.com
To be entered into clearing you must pay the full fee of £22 to UCAS. If you only paid the £12 fee to make a single application, you will need to pay an addition £11 to enter clearing.
If you are in clearing you will need to select the course you have been accepted on and then we will confirm your choice in UCAS.
Part Time applicants do not need to apply to UCAS, but they will need to complete an application form once accepted:
How do I know if my course is Full Time or Part Time?
All our courses are classed as full-time, with the exception of HNC Mechanical Engineering which is a part-time course. Please note that you may be able to follow some of our degrees on a part-time basis. For more information on studying part-time, please email us at email@example.com
I have applied to UCAS, but I can’t add a College/University as a choice?
You must be classed as in “Clearing” in UCAS Track in order to add choices. If you are still holding offers, you must reject these offers and be released into Clearing. To do this you must contact the institutions you currently hold offers with and request that they release you. You will need to do this for both your Firm and Insurance choices.
What will happen once I am accepted onto a course?
We will contact you with your start date and send you joining instructions.
When do I need to apply to Student Finance?
You can apply for Student Finance up to 9 months from the start of your degree. However, we strongly recommend that you apply so as possible. Please note that unless your loan is in place, your maintenance loan will not be released.
Apply for Student Finance
Can I apply for Student Finance if my course is Part Time?
Yes, but you are not entitled for the Maintenance Loan. You may only apply for the Tuition Fees Loan.
Please make sure that you select part time option method of study in Student Finance.
