What is Clearing and who is it for?

Open from 5 July 2022, Clearing is how you can apply to study at university-level from September if you don't have a place secured yet.

There are a range of reasons you might be applying through Clearing, such as:

  • You haven't applied anywhere yet, but have decided you'd like to study for a degree from September 2022
  • You've changed your mind and would like to apply to study a different course or to study somewhere else
  • You didn't get the grades you expected and your offers have not been confirmed
  • You achieved better results than you anticipated

Whatever the reason, we're here to help!

How to Apply

If you wish to study a full-time undergraduate programme (inc. foundation degrees, bachelor's degrees and HNCs), you can do so through UCAS, choosing Riseholme (R) as your chosen campus.

You are eligible to apply through clearing using the UCAS site until 18th October 2022 if:

  • You don’t hold an offer
  • You didn’t meet the conditions of any offers you accepted
  • You declined / withdrew from a ‘firm’ place that you had previously accepted by clicking the ‘decline my place’ button in Track

Before applying, please give us call on 01964 553010 to discuss availability on your chosen course. We'll need your UCAS ID (not your clearing number) and will advise on the course code you should use.

We carefully consider and evaluate every part of your application – your qualifications, personal statement, reference and relevant experience – to make sure that you have chosen the right course and that you are a good match for Riseholme.

Please see our admissions policy for details about how we assess applications. 

Part-Time Programmes

At Riseholme, we are able to provide a range of flexible part-time programmes to fit around your life and situation. If you would like to study a part-time programme, you can do so directly with us by completing an application form.
