Clearing and Adjustment vacancies

During Clearing we may consider applicants whose grades are different from the standard entry requirements published on our online course finder. The subjects and indicative minimum entry requirements for each subject area that we offer are set out below.

If your grades are at or above the minimum indicative entry requirements, we may be able to consider you but this will depend on a range of factors, including the A level subjects you have taken and the number of places we still have available. If you are interested please give us a call and we can advise you.

Please note the following:

  • You must have three A levels to be considered
  • The majority of subjects do not accept General Studies or Critical Thinking as one of the three A levels
  • Foundation entry means that you will join a four year degree programme, starting with the Science and Engineering Foundation Programme (SEFP), and not the first year of a Bachelors degree.
