Clearing and Adjustment vacancies

During Clearing we may consider applicants whose grades are different from those published on the course web pages. If your grades are at or above the minimum indicative entry requirements in the table below, we may be able to consider you for one of our programmes, although this will depend on a range of factors including the number of vacancies we have and the A level subject combination you have. If your grades are at or above the minimum indicative entry requirements for the subject you are interested in, please give us a call and we can advise you.

Please note that you must have three A levels to be considered. For the majority of our programmes this excludes General Studies and Critical Thinking.
