What is Clearing?

Clearing is a centralised admissions process open to anyone still looking to apply for a higher education course starting in September, but who has yet to secure a place. You might have to apply through Clearing for a number of reasons. Maybe you decided to apply to university after the UCAS application date had passed, or perhaps you didn't quite get the grades you wanted, or maybe you just changed your mind about what or where you wanted to study.

Whatever the case, we're here to help. Our experienced and dedicated Admissions team can guide you through the application process quickly and easily so that you can secure a place on the courses that's right for you and start your music industry career with confidence.

You can also find more information on exactly how clearing works in the  UCAS Clearing Guide.

How Do I Apply?

You can apply via  UCAS or directly to the School by  registering and completing our HE application form.

Read through our course overviewsentry requirements and fees and funding information. You can also read about the exclusive features we offer.

The step by step guide below outlines how to apply and what you need to provide with your application.

Blended Learning, Virtual Classroom and Student Views

Subject the UK Government advice, we expect to be running all classes on campus from September. However, as you will be aware the global Coronavirus pandemic has meant that all universities and colleges have to adapt the way they teach, the way that students learn and the way that campuses operate. 

Our blended learning approach enables students to choose between coming into campus to study in a safe and socially-distanced way, or studying remotely at home via our innovative Virtual Classroom, or a combination of the two.  On campus or online, however you choose to study, we'll make sure you get the best music education and student experience available. Watch the videos below to find out more and hear what our current students have to say.
