What to know about Clearing

What is Clearing?

Clearing is your opportunity to study the subject you’re passionate about at the university of your choice.

You are eligible for Clearing if you meet one of the following criteria:

  • You didn’t achieve the grades for your firm and insurance offers
  • You didn’t receive or haven’t accepted any offers
  • You haven’t yet submitted a UCAS application
  • You want to transfer from another university or college

Already have an offer with Middlesex?

On results day, your UCAS Track will be updated with the following statements:

My offer has been confirmed. What happens next?

Congratulations! Confirmation of your offer means that you have a place at Middlesex University for September 2019 and you will soon be receiving further information about induction and enrolment.

Made it to Middlesex

My place has not been confirmed. What do I need to do now?

We may require further information to make a decision (e.g. copies of your qualifications, confirmation of your residency status).

Please contact us on 0208 411 6565 and we will be able to advise you accordingly.

I have not met the conditions of my offer

Please look on UCAS Track first as we may still be able to accept you or offer you an alternative course in a related subject. If we have offered you an alternative course you will need to accept this on UCAS Track. If we cannot accept you, this will also be shown on UCAS Track.

What do I do if I have an offer from another university?

If you are holding an offer from another university, you will need to be released into Clearing by that institution. Give us a call when our Clearing lines open on Monday 1 July 2019 to check if we can offer you a place.

International students

We are able to accept applications for most of our courses from international students. Our Clearing hotline opens on Monday 1 July 2019. Make sure you inform us that you are an international student and require a Tier 4 Visa to study in the UK.

If you are an international applicant and have not applied through UCAS yet you will need to complete our online application form.

You can also apply directly to your nearest regional office or apply through one of our trusted educational consultants in your country.

How do I apply for my visa?

Once you have received an offer and successfully completed a visa credibility interview (where appropriate), we will be able to issue you with a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). Please make sure to send us scanned copies of your passport, your qualifications and your English language qualifications (if required) to clearing@mdx.ac.uk to complete your application. You can then apply for a student visa through the Border Agency.

I am a European Union student. What do I need to do about my health insurance?

If you are a student from the European Union it is important you apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). The process is often a lot easier if you apply for your card in your home country before you arrive in the UK.
