How does Clearing work?

About Clearing

Clearing gives you the chance of attending university in September 2018 even if you don't already have a formal offer.

You can use Clearing if you:

  • wish to make an application and already have your exam results
  • didn't receive any offers or have changed your mind about the offers you did receive and wish to apply for a different course
  • didn't meet the conditions of your offers.

Once you have your final results, you can apply through Clearing. Places on courses may fill up fast so we recommend that you apply as soon as possible once you have your results.

Contact the University of West London Clearing Team today to discuss your eligibility for one of our courses. In most instances, we can provide an immediate decision.
