What is Clearing and Adjustment?

If you don’t receive the exam results that you were hoping for, you can apply for a place on an undergraduate course via the Clearing and Adjustment process.

The Adjustment process is available to you if you have met and exceeded the conditions of your current conditional firm offer. You will be given the opportunity to enter Adjustment and consider an alternative course, without losing the conditional firm offer that you have already gained.

If you haven’t met the conditions of your current conditional firm offer, or if you haven’t yet applied for a course, you can enter Clearing through UCAS. This is a great opportunity to find a course option that is right for you!
