UCAS Clearing


Clearing is a final opportunity for applicants to secure a university place each year.

Anyone who applies after 30 June will automatically be entered into Clearing.

You can apply to Leeds Beckett via Clearing, if you haven't yet applied to a university; if you haven't received any offers or; if you haven't met the entry requirements needed by your chosen university.

  • Clearing is a part of the UCAS university application process.
  • It gives applicants without a university place another chance of finding a suitable and available course at university.

If you have already applied

If you have achieved your predicted grades, congratulations! All you need to do now is accept your offer via UCAS Track.

If Leeds Beckett is your Insurance choice and you would like to come here instead of your Firm choice please call us first to confirm that we have a place available for you. You must then contact your Firm offer institution and ask to be released into Clearing.

If your results are better than expected

Are your results better than expected? We would welcome your application as many courses have places available for high-achieving applicants. You might be eligible to register for 'Adjustment', which you can access via your UCAS Track account. This scheme provides an opportunity to reconsider where and what to study. Before referring yourself via UCAS, please call us to discuss your options on 0113 812 3113 and we would be more than happy to talk to you.

If your results are not what you hoped for

If you didn't get the grades you hoped for please call us on 0113 812 3113 for advice, you could still secure a place here. The entry requirements for all courses include GCSE English Language and most will ask for Maths at grade C or above. If you don't have these we accept alternative equivalents, please check our online prospectus for more details.

Other things to consider

Once you have an offer from us you will need to consider where you are going to be living. Please call our Accommodation Team on 0113 812 5972, they will be happy to help.

If you have previously applied for a student loan against a course at another institution, you need to change your student finance application to Leeds Beckett University before you arrive and enrol on your course. You may otherwise face delays in the payment of maintenance and tuition fee loans from the Student Loans Company.
