Clearing spaces available

If you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college or have declined an offer, you don’t have to wait for your exam results, you can apply now using Clearing.

Once you get your exam results, and if they are better or worse than you hoped for, you may want to rethink your options and can enter Clearing at that point.

Making decisions about your future can be daunting and the Clearing process and its deadlines may feel like added pressure, but it can have positive outcomes.

Lucy Findlay (pictured), who is graduating this year, joined our Applied Theatre & Community Drama course through Clearing. “Clearing shouldn’t be feared. It’s an opportunity to perhaps slightly re-think your plans. What seemed like the right path when you started applying for courses might have changed. You can reassess what you really want to do, your strengths and weaknesses, and see if there’s a course which is a better fit for you.

By going through clearing, I was able to discover the Applied Theatre & Community Drama course. It was a much better fit and exactly what I wanted to do. I think I’ve ended up being much happier thanks to Clearing and choosing this course.
