Clearing at the
University Centre

Clearing is an excellent opportunity for you to secure a place at the University Centre if you have received your results and they weren't what you were expecting or if you haven't yet applied for university. This page aims to help you explore your options and put you in contact with our friendly team of advisers.

What is Clearing and how do I apply?

You can use Clearing if:

  • you’re applying after 30 June
  • you didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • you didn’t meet the conditions of your offers
  • you've paid the multiple choice application fee of £27
  • you’ve declined your firm place using the ‘decline my place’ button in your UCAS hub

To apply for a full-time course here at the University Centre, you will need to complete an application through UCAS. As we are now in Clearing if you don't already have an application in the system you will not be able to add the course choice at this stage. Please let us know your UCAS ID if you are completing an application for the first time, so we can search for your application.

We will need to see copies of your certificates, including your GCSE Maths/English and your Level 3 qualifications. If you are a mature student (over 21) and you don't have formal qualifications, we may be able to consider your application based on your experience.

“The course seemed like the natural progression for me and fitted my lifestyle in Cornwall. I like living here, have family here and I play a lot of sport in Cornwall too, so I wasn’t looking to move away. With the small classes, you receive pretty much 1:1 support from the tutors, which is really beneficial to your learning. Our tutors were there for help and support and we had careers sessions too with the Uni Careers advisor Louise. We knew that we had support with our next steps even after we graduate which is really helpful.”
