City is part of the University of London
By joining us through Clearing in September you will also be joining the University of London.
You are making an important choice about where you will spend the next few years of your life. So take a deep breath and follow our top tips to making the most out of Clearing.
First of all, keep a cool, clear mind and don't rush your decision. Clearing and Adjustment for UK students starts on 'A' Level results day and is an opportunity to help you find a place if you have not achieved the results you were expecting.
Look into the various universities and institutions that you're interested in and make a short-list. Think about where you want to study, the reputation and ranking of the institution, what kind of benefits it offers, and how well the course will prepare you for your future career. It will help if you are clear about the course you want to take and why you think it will suit you.
If possible, get help from the people around you. Ask them to help with your research, give feedback on your short-list and help you stay calm and focus on your goal: getting into the place to study that's right for you.
If you are interested in studying at City, check our available courses and call our Clearing hotline.
Once you have received a formal UCAS Clearing offer you will not be able to follow up any other Clearing offers or conversations you may have had with other institutions. So before you accept, make sure you're happy with the decision you're about to make.
The earliest you can submit your decision through Clearing is 3pm on 'A' Level results day. This is to allow applicants to research their course and institutions properly before making a decision.
The UCAS website provides a wealth of information detailing how you should go about applying for a place to study using their Clearing services. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of all this information - especially the video section; this is easy to understand information for students, parents & guardians and advisors.
