If you have not met the requirements at your chosen university, and they can’t make you an offer for an alternative course, don’t worry!

As long as you’ve passed your qualification, NCUK steps in to help find you a place at another of our NCUK Guaranteed Universities through a process called Clearing

 

Step 1

You will receive your NCUK results. If you have passed and managed to get into your chosen university then congratulations! However, for those who didn’t get the grades you wanted, don’t worry as there are other options.

Step 2

Whilst the NCUK Admissions & Placement team reviews your grades and potential alternative university options, don’t worry and try to stay calm. NCUK will do its best in providing you with the correct information and with as much support as possible.

Step 3

Within 48 hours you will receive a letter from the NCUK Admissions & Placement team which will include alternative universities that you could progress to, as well as degree courses similar to your original choice

Step 4

You choose one of the alternative degree courses that you would like to study that the NCUK Admissions & Placement team have provided in their email to you. Confirm this option with Study Centre staff.

Step 5

NCUK will work with your Study Centre to get your unconditional place at university processed and the documentation you need to get a Visa.
