2019 Clearing Advice and 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.

Don't Panic

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 foward, very quick and well organised - everythig was sorted in a week of applying.

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 law and business 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 from 16 to 20 August. 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 the time.

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 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.

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 until 20 September, 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.
