Frequently asked questions
Clearing isn’t just for those that didn’t meet their offers. If you’ve missed out on your first choices, declined any offers made to you, or you’re applying to university after 30 June, you will automatically be entered into Clearing. If you’ve had a sudden change of heart about your choices, Clearing could be for you too.
Whatever your reason, at BNU we can help support you and find the course which is right for you.
Clearing officially opens on 5 July for students who have already received their exam results or are not holding any offers. It runs until 18 October.
If you’ve not got your results yet, it is best to see what your exams are before using the Clearing system.
Places can fill up quickly, so you’ll want to get on the phone as soon as you get your results to see what courses are open to you with your grades. It’s worth doing your homework in advance – and researching universities and your options - so you’re ready to go on results day.
Firstly, congratulations! If you’ve met or exceeded your offers then you may have heard of something called Adjustment. This is an opportunity for you to reconsider where and what to study. If you are happy with your choice of course you don’t need to do anything, but you may wish to have a look around at other courses available to you.
There isn’t a vacancy list for Adjustment, so if you are interested in applying to BNU and would like to know what courses we have available, just give us a call on 0330 123 2023 to discuss your options.
If you have applied to BNU and this application was rejected during the main UCAS cycle, unfortunately we are unable to consider an application for the same course through Clearing.
We are happy to provide feedback as to why your application was rejected, so you can make changes and reapply in the next UCAS cycle.
If you wish to discuss your options further, please contact a member of our Admissions team who will be happy to advise you.
