GET READY TO START

We will guide you every step of the way, from choosing your course, learning more about life at Cumbria, to finding a new home and getting your finances in place.

Clearing is simply another way to secure a place at university.

Clearing starts 6 July and closes 20 October. If you haven't met the entry requirements for your course, or haven't received an offer, you are automatically entered into Clearing. If you have only just decided to go to university now or waited to apply late you can do this during Clearing.

You can apply for a course as soon as you receive your exam results. For most students, this will be BTEC and A-Level results days (which are both in August) but if you're studying other qualifications, such as an Access course, it may be sooner.

Our Clearing hotline is now open, you can speak to our friendly team about your options.
