I’m looking for more information

  • Clearing is a great opportunity to get onto a course at university. If you didn’t quite meet the requirements of your original offer, you don’t currently hold any offers, you declined all of your offers or you haven’t yet made an application, then Clearing is for you!

    If you already have your results and are applying for an undergraduate course but don’t have a UCAS account, we can help you with your UCAS application.

    Please note: if you are applying for a Health and Social Care course, you need to have a current UCAS application for this academic year, including a reference, and not be placed elsewhere.

  • At LSBU, you don’t have to wait until A-level results day on Thursday 16 August to join us. If you have your results, we’ll be accepting online Clearing applications from 5 July.

    From 16 August you can also apply over the phone.

    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.

  • There are plenty of ways you can contact us and get expert advice:

    All Health and Social Care applications must be submitted online only.

    Social Media: On 16 and 17 August we will be accepting applications through social media, as long as you already have a UCAS ID. DM us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with your name, UCAS ID and course of interest and we’ll get back to you.
