If your results are not what you expected, and you no longer hold an offer with a university, but still wish to study with Plymouth University this September, you may be eligible for Clearing. Your UCAS Track status will notify you if applicable, so check the UCAS website.
Step 1: Check that there are vacancies on the course of your choice. Our vacancies list will be available here from 8.00am on Thursday 14 August.
Step 2: Check that you meet the minimum entry requirements for the course. If you do not meet the minimum entry requirements, you may be able to find an alternative route through one of our partner colleges (listed under our schools). Please contact the partner college directly for their course vacancies and entry requirements.
Step 3: If you meet the minimum entry requirements, call our Confirmation & Clearing Hotline on +44 1752 585858 to register your course application interest. Please have the following to hand:
- Your UCAS number and/or Clearing number
- Your level 3 qualification results, i.e. A Levels, BTEC, IB
- Your GCSE Maths, English and Science grades
If you cannot call us now, complete our simple call me back form and we will call you back.
Step 4: If you are eligible and a space is available, you will be advised accordingly by the Hotline staff and a verbal offer made to you. You will then need to submit an application via UCAS Track within 24 hours of the verbal offer being made using the institution code (P60), the course code and by selecting the ‘Add Clearing Choice’ button.
Once we have received your application, it will be processed and the outcome communicated by the next working day. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis and we do reserve the right to decline your application if the course is full or an application is received after 24 hours. We therefore encourage you to make your application as soon as possible after receiving your verbal offer.
You must telephone the University to find out whether we can make you an offer before referring yourself through UCAS Track.
If you don’t have access to your UCAS Account, you can phone the UCAS Customer Services on 0871 468 0468.
You can only enter details for one course choice. Only enter a Clearing choice if you want to accept the course that we offer you. Only once you have made your application, can we confirm your place.
Step 5: Once we have accepted you, we will send you enrolment information by email or post.
