Guidance for completion of Clearing Enquiry Form

Self Apply will open on the 5th July 2021.

You can still submit a clearing self apply query, however we can not guarantee we will be able to consider you for an offer. Please keep checking for updates.

The Clearing Enquiry Form should only be completed if you have your qualifications and are in receipt of your results.

If you do not have you qualifications, or are waiting for your results to be confirmed, please ring the Clearing hotline on 0800 085 1085 for further advice.

The Clearing Enquiry Form must be completed accurately and must contain all information regarding your personal details, qualifications, course choice and answers to the additional questions.

Courses should be researched thoroughly and you should ensure that you have all your qualifications to hand BEFORE starting the Clearing Enquiry Form.

You must ensure that your EMAIL ADDRESS and CONTACT TELEPHONE NUMBER are accurate. We will use this information as the primary methods of communicating with you.

If you can't find your relevant qualification on the list, please select 'Other' and provide further information in the 'Note' field. Some of the most common qualifications, include the following, they can be found using the short code: 

  • GAL - A Level
  • GASL - AS Level
  • EP - Extended Project
  • BTEC EX DIP - BTEC Extended Diploma

You can search for courses either by UCAS code or by the course title - for example - English Literature can be found by searching either 'Q320' or 'English'.

Once you have selected your chosen course, you can double check the entry requirements using the '+' under the course title in the viewing pane.

You must tick 'Select' and then confirm your course selection by clicking on the 'Selected Courses' button. 

Please take notice if the course you have chosen requires a portfolio, audition or interview. If your enquiry is successful, you will need to provide information or attend a Skype interview as part of the full selection process.

Please check your information carefully before submitting your form.

You will receive a pop up message upon successful submission of your Clearing Enquiry.

You will also receive an email confirming submission along with your Northumbria University Clearing Number and contact details, should you have any questions.
