What to do if you come through clearing

Whether you’ve come through clearing because you’re applying late, have changed your mind about what or where you'd like to study or missed out on the requirements of a conditional offer, ULaw will be there to help every step of the way.

Talk to our clearing team

Our Clearing hotline team are very experienced and will be ready and waiting to hear from you until 20 September. 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.

You can call our Clearing hotline on 0800 009 3375.

Use Your Time

Be proactive with your time, but also remember to not rush into anything. Doing your research is essential. Find out as much relevant information as possible about all our campuses and courses so you make the best decision for your future career.

You have until 20 September to join us through Clearing. Our guide on coming to ULaw through Clearing can be found here.

Accommodation

Even if you join us through Clearing, we will provide support to help you find suitable accommodation near your chosen campus ensuring you have a safe, comfortable place to live while you’re studying at The University of Law or our Business School. Our team will also support you by providing useful information about the area, advice on private accommodation and access to StudentPad which allows you to search for your perfect student accommodation in your chosen area.

Student Finance

If you’ve already gone through the Student Finance process then you need to let them know of your change in circumstances when you go through clearing. They’ll assess your application and inform you of any changes as quickly as they can.

But if haven’t applied for student finance yet, and would like to, you need to do so now.

Applications take six weeks to be processed, so you might not get all your money straightaway, but Student Finance will endeavour to provide initial funding as close to your course start date as possible.

For more information on Student Finance, see their website here.

Come to see us

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. You’ll also be able to meet with tutors, fellow students and career advisors. From talks, law taster events and tours, to meeting tutors, staff and our support services, our Open Days are a great way to discover more about us.

If you’ve come through Clearing then don’t worry. We run regular campus visits which will allow you to get a feel for ULaw and will fit in with your schedule. To arrange a visit please see our events.

However you join us at ULaw, we know you’ll have the University experience you want. To read more about Clearing, please visit our Clearing page here, or read a first-hand account of the clearing process from one of our current business students, James Walters.
