I’m looking for more information

  • If you’re a Home/EU student wanting to start a full-time undergraduate course this September, then you can apply through Clearing.

    Clearing is for anyone who is not holding an offer at a university or has changed their mind about their firm/insurance choice. This includes you if you didn’t quite meet the requirements of your original offer, you haven't made an application, you declined all your offers or you’ve changed your mind about your course.

    Visit the following pages if you're interested in applying for: part-time undergraduate courses, postgraduate courses, apprenticeships or if you’re an international student.

  • Use our course finder to explore undergraduate courses at London South Bank University - you should see an image on the right hand side of the course page, which tells you whether there are spaces remaining or not.

    Man and woman and text: Places available to start 2018. Apply now.

    You can also give us a call on 0800 923 8888 to speak to an advisor.

  • If you have your results, we’re accepting Clearing applications now.

    Clearing closes in mid-September but try and get your application in as early as possible, when there’s likely to be more spaces left on our courses.

  • Check UCAS Track to see if you’ve still been offered a place on your chosen course. If you have, you’ll receive information on what to do next.

    If not, don’t worry, give us a call and we’ll talk you through your options: 0800 923 8888.

  • If you missed both your firm and insurance offers, or didn't have an insurance offer, then you can apply through Clearing now. Your Clearing number will show on UCAS Track - use this and your UCAS ID to apply to LSBU for a course in Clearing.

    If you changed your mind about your firm and/or insurance place, but you met the offer (or they're accepting you with lower grades) then you'll have to contact those universities and ask them to release you. They'll probably ask for reasons why, and it could take up to two weeks for your request to be processed - it’s important to do this as soon as possible so you don't miss out on a place at LSBU. Once your release has been processed, your Clearing number will show on UCAS Track.

    If you don't have any offers, but made an application through UCAS before 30 June, you will automatically be entered into Clearing, and your Clearing ID will be on UCAS Track. This may happen if you rejected all your offers or if you were unsuccessful in your applications.

    If you have not applied through UCAS yet, or applied after 30 June (12 June for Art & Design courses), you need to make a Clearing application. Call 0800 923 8888 and our advisors will create your Clearing application for you on UCAS. Your Clearing ID number will show up on Track as soon as your application has been processed by UCAS.

    Health and social care applicants need to have a current UCAS application for this academic year, including a reference, before they can apply through Clearing. If you have already been unsuccessful in your application for a course at LSBU for 2018/19, you can not apply through Clearing.

    To apply call 0800 923 8888 to speak to one of our dedicated Clearing advisors who’ll take you through your application. We're open Monday 20 August to Friday 24 August 8am-5pm.

    You can also speak to us in person at one of our Clearing application sessions.

    You'll need a few things before applying: your most recent qualifications, your UCAS ID if you have one and the course you would like to apply for.

    Health and Social Care applicants: To apply for a course in the School of Health and Social Care visit our online application system. You need to have a current UCAS application for this academic year, including a reference. If you have already been unsuccessful in your application for a Health and Social Care course at LSBU for 2018/19, you can not apply through Clearing.

  • Find a place with a good internet connection and/or mobile reception.

    Have your exam results to hand and, if you have one, your Clearing ID from UCAS Track.

    Have a list of alternative or joint honours courses you’d like to study if your course is not available.

    If you have questions, write them down before you call or chat with us, so that you don't forget to ask everything you want to know.
