Start with us this autumn

If you are yet to secure an offer, or your exam results are different than expected, Clearing is another way to get into university and start this autumn. Make sure you get in touch to discuss your options with us, even if your grades are below the standard course requirements.

We guarantee accommodation for successful Clearing students who apply for a room by 5pm (BST) on Wednesday 21 August*. For more information on how to apply, please visit our accommodation pages.

*Terms and conditions apply.

You can enter Clearing if you’ve already applied through UCAS and you do not hold any offers.

You'll know you're in Clearing if your UCAS Track status says 'You are in Clearing' or 'Clearing has started'.

How to apply

  1. View available below.
  2. When you find a suitable course, call us on 0800 052 2248 (UK callers) or +44 (0)1483 686828 (international callers). Make sure you have all your qualifications to hand, including your GCSE results.
  3. If we can accept you, we’ll let you know during the conversation. You’ll then receive formal confirmation via email.
  4. Once you’ve spoken to us, you need to refer yourself to the University via your UCAS Track.
  5. Click ‘Add Clearing choice’ and fill in the course details before the deadline you were given in your email and refer yourself. This counts as you firmly accepting the offer.
  6. We’ll formally confirm your place and you’ll receive official confirmation from UCAS and see it on your UCAS Track.

I’ve not applied to university yet – can I go through Clearing?

If you’ve not yet applied to university, you can complete a UCAS application until 20 September.

If you applied after 30 June, you’ll automatically be entered into Clearing, so you shouldn’t fill in any choices on your application.

To apply for a place at Surrey through Clearing, call 0800 052 2248 (UK callers) or +44 (0)1483 686828 (international callers).

Consider a foundation year

We have a range of degree programmes with a foundation year, to make it easier to access the education we offer. A foundation year is an extra year of study at the start of your course that leads into a full degree programme.

It’s a great option if:

  • You don’t have the grades for a full degree course
  • You have non-traditional qualifications or experience
  • You’re starting university after some time away from education
  • You’re looking for more support during the transition into university study.

Will you provide accommodation? 

Accommodation is guaranteed for successful Clearing students who apply for a room by 5pm (BST) on Wednesday 21 August*. For more information on how to apply, please visit our accommodation pages.

*Terms and conditions apply.

If you’ve accepted a conditional offer as your firm choice, but you’ve done better in your exams than expected, Adjustment offers you a chance to reconsider where and what to study, and potentially secure a place on another course you prefer.

How to apply

  1. Make sure you're registered for Adjustment.
  2. Check out our course list below, to see if your chosen course is available.
  3. To apply for a place call 0800 052 2248 (UK callers) or +44 (0)1483 686828 (international callers).
  4. Tell us you're applying through Adjustment and give us your UCAS ID. Please note that we won’t be able to see your application unless you've registered for Adjustment with UCAS.
  5. We’ll check you've met and exceeded your conditions of your firm choice. Remember, if you contact us on results day there could be a short delay while your application is updated.
  6. If we can offer you a place and you decide to accept, we’ll advise you verbally and formally accept you through UCAS.
  7. You’ll then be able to view this on your UCAS Track and will receive confirmation from UCAS.

How to register for Adjustment

Click ‘Register for Adjustment’ on the choices screen in UCAS Track – remember, you need to have met and exceeded the conditions of your firm choice.

If originally you only applied for one course you'll have to pay an additional fee to be able to apply to multiple courses.

Your original unconditional firm (UF) choice will be safe if you try Adjustment. If you don't find anything you'll only lose your place if you confirm you'd like to go elsewhere and the new university/college adds itself to your application.

How long is Adjustment open?

Adjustment is available between 16 and 31 August.

You only have five 24-hour periods (including weekends) within this time to take advantage of Adjustment, starting from when your conditional firm (CF) offer changes to unconditional firm (UF), or on A-level results day – whichever is the latter.

Will you provide accommodation? 

Accommodation is guaranteed for successful Clearing students who apply for a room by 5pm (BST) on Wednesday 21 August*. For more information on how to apply, please visit our accommodation pages.

If you hold a conditional firm or insurance place with the University of Surrey, you can find out if your place has been confirmed via:

Once we’ve received your results, we’ll also send you an email or a text message to advise you of our decision. 

My UCAS Track hasn't updated

You can refer yourself on UCAS Track from 3pm Thursday 15 August.

If you’ve not received any communication from us, or your place is still showing as conditional on UCAS Track or Surrey Self-Service, please contact our Clearing team.

We will be available Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm

Are you waiting for GCSE results or to meet other conditions?

If you’re holding a conditional offer and have made Surrey your firm or insurance choice, you can find out if your place has been confirmed on UCAS Track or Surrey Self-Service. We’ll also send you an email and/or text message with our decision.

Emails will be sent to students with confirmed places shortly after A-level results day on 15 August. This will include guidance on what to do next, including Online Registration and preparing for Welcome Week.

If you’re waiting for results due late in August (e.g. GCSEs on the 22 August), please make sure you upload those results to Surrey Self-Service as soon as you receive them. The deadline to meet the conditions of your offer is 31 August. If it looks like you might not meet this deadline, please contact the Admissions team on +44 (0)1483 682222.
