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 straight away, but Student Finance will endeavour to provide initial funding as close to your course start date as possible.
