  1. Keep calm and be positive – Have someone with you for support and keep a clear head. Make sure you don’t rush your decision. See how clearing works.
  2. Collect your results and check what grades you’ve achieved – Before you start looking for our courses that are in Clearing make sure you know what your total grades are. Make a list of all the qualifications you've achieved. Once you have these make a note of our Clearing hotline and give us a call at 0800 376 1800 (UK) or +44 (0) 203 053 0793 (overseas).
  3. Research available options – make a wish list of the courses that you wish to study with us by looking at our course finder where you will find more information about the content and structure. You can also chat to our students online.
  4. Visit our campus to make sure it feels like the right place for you – Whether you’re local or live further afield make time and be prepared to visit us or look at our virtual tour to find out if it feels like the place you want to spend your next three years. Check the accommodation and how much it costs and ask questions about campus life and student support.
