Whether you’ve changed your mind about your firm choice, or got different grades than you were expecting, make your future happen with BSU. Study in one of the UK's most beautiful cities - your home from home.

What is Clearing?

Clearing is a second chance to secure a place at university, whether your grades are higher or lower than predicted, you have no firm offers, you want to make a different choice, or you applied late (after 30 June).

If you don’t hold any offers from universities, or have changed your mind about your firm choice, you can search and apply to study through Clearing. Universities will have a number of places available on various courses – the choice is yours!

How to apply through Clearing

“I applied through Clearing to study Philosophy and Ethics and Psychology, which was exactly what I wanted to do. I hadn’t heard of Bath Spa University before, but the website gave the impression that the University really cares about the student's mental health, which was very important for me.

When I started in September, I was immediately shocked at the beauty of the University campus and how kind a lot of the students and staff were.”

– Florence, Philosophy and Ethics and Psychology BSc, first year


How does Clearing work?

Universities will advertise which courses are available through Clearing and, when you find the right course for you, you'll need to contact the university to ask any questions and request a verbal/provisional offer from them. When you're happy with your offer, head to UCAS to add your Clearing choice.

How do I contact the University?

Call our admissions team on +44 (0)1225 875 550 or complete our online form. Our phone lines are open 10am - 4pm, Monday to Friday.

When does Clearing open for 2024 entry?

Can I get a place at Bath Spa University through Clearing?

If you don’t hold any offers (this could be because you haven’t applied, haven’t received any offers or you haven’t accepted any offers) you can search and request a place at Bath Spa through Clearing.

Is there Clearing accommodation?

We'll give you a guaranteed offer of accommodation when you apply and accept your Clearing offer. You can register your interest from 15 August, when our form goes live. Accommodation is first-come, first served so it’s a good idea to apply for Clearing accommodation early if you’re interested in studying at BSU.
