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
