So you’ve got your exam results. What now? Results day is the start of Clearing, when we offer any spare places for this year’s degree courses. It’s another way to get a place on one of our fantastic courses.


The UEL advisor I spoke to during Clearing was very calm and knew exactly what they were talking about. I got my email confirmation a few days later and was asked to come in for my induction. Overall, I found the experience much better than I expected.
