Top tips for applying
Do your research
Before you apply make sure you've looked into key information such as how the course is taught and assessed, whether you get a dedicated studio space, if accommodation is still available and what support services are available to you.
Always complete your application yourself.
If you're applying by phone, have your UCAS number (if you have one) and your qualifications (including the name of the qualification, the subject, the grade and when you took them) to hand.
Ask the right questions
When you're talking to our Applicant Services Team, be sure to get all your questions answered. For example you might want to ask what accommodation is available, whether you have a deadline, when the start of term is or whether there is any summer reading/work for your course.
We can also arrange for you to speak to a current student, or you can chat to them online.
As a Clearing applicant you're guaranteed a room in our university managed halls of residence. Check out our accommodation options and apply as soon as possible to secure your top choice.Accommodation
Clearing students are still able to access student funding – including loans, bursaries and awards.
