Clearing. What’s it all about?

Everything might feel a little up in the air right now. But don’t worry. You still have options.

Whether you didn’t get the grades you were expecting, or you’ve just changed your mind about what and where you want to study, Clearing can help, well, clear things up for you.

Find out a bit more about why Clearing is the right decision for thousands of students every year – and what it could mean for you.

What exactly is Clearing?

Clearing is just a different way of doing things. Originally, it was designed to help students who didn’t have a place at university. These days, it helps all sorts of prospective students find their feet.

Perhaps you did better than expected and have set your sights on a more prestigious university? Or maybe you’ve had second thoughts about the course or university you had initially chosen? Whatever the reason, Clearing gives you the freedom to change direction. 

How to find a place through Clearing

Once you’ve decided which university and subject you’re interested in, you can start taking the first steps towards securing a place. 

Like Coventry, lots of universities have a Clearing team you can call. Our friendly staff will chat to you about what you’re looking for, let you know which courses are available and talk you through the Clearing process. They will do everything they can to find the right course for you and your future plans - call us on 02476 888 888.

And, if you’re a little phone shy, you can always speak to us online via Live Chat.

What can you study?

That depends really. Lots of universities have a wide range of degrees available through Clearing, but some of the more popular courses might be full. Plus, you might need to have studied certain subjects or have relevant experience in a particular area before getting accepted onto some degree programmes. 

At Coventry, we have limited places on many of our courses. At the moment there’s still space on our business, computing, design, engineering, health, law, humanities, life sciences and art degrees – so whether you’re a budding entrepreneur, a promising young designer or a top-notch lawyer in the making, it’s likely we have a degree to suit your ambitions. 

And that’s not all there is to decide – we have campuses in Coventry, London and Scarborough. So whether you’re after the hustle and bustle of a major city, or you’re looking for something more scenic and low key, there’s a range of options to choose from. Find out which one is right for you.

What will university look like in September?

We know that coming to university this year is a big decision. Coronavirus means that some aspects of student life have had to change – at least for the time being. 

At Coventry, we want to offer as much face-to-face teaching as possible from September, and we are currently planning for five hours of on-campus timetabled learning per student each week during each semester/block, while prioritising the wellbeing of our staff and students. Alongside these on-campus small group lectures and seminars, we’re introducing Aula – a mobile-first online platform for all our courses, so that you can decide how you want to approach your degree. You’ll be able to create small online working groups, chat privately with your tutors, and access all your module materials in one central newsfeed.

And because the current situation is likely to change quickly, we’re aiming to be as flexible as possible – so we can adapt to new developments as and when we need. 

Take a look at our plans for September for more information.
