Once your place on one of our Law, Criminology, Policing, Politics or Business degrees has been confirmed, there are a number of things you need to do. We'll also email you with important information about tuition fees and joining instructions.
Here's a checklist of what you need to do next.
Let Student Finance know you’re coming to ULaw
If you've already applied to Student Finance you'll need to let them know that your institution and course has changed. This is very important as it could affect what you're entitled to. Full-time students can make changes to their course or university details online through Student Finance England.
To make a change, log in to your online account and navigate to: My Account > Make changes to my application > Change your course
Please note: Part-time and postgraduate students will need to send a form.
Still need to apply for finance?
If you haven’t yet applied for student finance, you'll need to apply right away. You can apply online through Student Finance.
Student Finance will do their best to make sure you get some of your finance as close as possible to the start of term, but the sooner you apply the better.
Pay your tuition fees
Information about course fees and how to pay them can be found on our course fees pages.
If you're moving away from home to study with us, you'll need to find somewhere to live. Go to your chosen campus page to find out about how our accommodation team can help you find suitable accommodation nearby.
If you have a disability or learning difficulty and would like to speak to someone about what measures can be put in place to assist you, contact our Disability Support & Inclusion Service team as soon as you can. We can work with you to help meet any tuition, technical, library or exam challenges before you start your course.
Phone: 01483 216657
You can find out more about the support we can offer you and hear first-hand from students who have used our service on our website.
Our Top Tips
We understand that Clearing can be a stressful and daunting time, so here are a few tips from our dedicated team, a ULaw graduate and a current Business School student (both of whom came through Clearing), to help you make the process as stress-free as possible.
If you’re unhappy with your grades on results day, don’t panic says James Walters, a graduate of the ULaw LLB who came through Clearing:
“I found the Clearing process straight forward, very quick and well organised - everything was sorted in a week of applying.” – James Walters
Know your Options
It’s always good to keep an open mind and have a backup list of other options.
By considering ULaw as one of your Clearing choices, you’ll have the option of choosing from our range of practical-focused undergraduate degrees, all taught by qualified professionals with real business experience:
- Full-time - 3 years
- Full-time accelerated - 2 years
- Full-time with foundation - 4 years
- Online - 4 years
You’ll also have the option of taking your pick from campuses across the UK, including Birmingham, Leeds, London Bloomsbury and Manchester, all with close links to law firms and thriving business centres.
Talk to the Clearing Team
Our Clearing hotline team are very experienced and will be ready and waiting to hear from you, with extended opening times during Clearing. They’ll be able to talk you through everything, giving you the information and advice you need to make the process as easy as possible.
“The team at ULaw were very helpful and guided me through it one step at a time.” – Amber Crain
Make sure you have the following to hand to make it as easy and quick a process as possible:
- Your UCAS personal ID
- Your email address
- Your exam results
- Your course of choice
Use your Time Wisely
Don’t rush into anything, but also make sure you’re proactive with your time. Doing your research is essential. Find out as much relevant information as possible. A helpful guide is The Guardian’s Study Law series.
To help you make a confident firm decision, arrange a campus visit. This way you’ll get a real feel for where you may be spending the next couple of years.
At ULaw we run drop-in campus visits at all our locations – our friendly team will be able to show you around, run through course information and discuss funding and accommodation.
“I'd advise any other students going through Clearing to just be organised. Know what you want to do and put a checklist in place.” – James Walters
Don’t Give Up… and Keep in Touch
Those who act fast and are prepared will get the best chance of successfully securing a place, but Clearing is open longer than you might think, so don’t panic. We’ll still be here to help.
“Applying to ULaw through Clearing was one of the best decisions I’ve made, it worked out incredibly well for me, and I’ve joined a course supported by fantastic tutors and made some great friends who I wouldn’t have met had I not applied.” – Amber Crain
You can keep up-to-date with ULaw Clearing through our Twitter page, where we’ll post the latest information about our courses, funding and bursaries as well as answer your Clearing questions.
If you have exceeded the conditions of your firm choice and want to look at other degree options you can register for Adjustment through UCAS.
If you have any other queries about Clearing, please get in touch and one of our team will be happy to help.
