When you get your exam results, you may not meet the conditions of your Firm or Insurance course offers. Clearing gives you the chance to explore new options.

Applying to the University of Stirling through Clearing is quick and simple:

  1. On Results Day, you should immediately consult UCAS Track to see if you've met the conditions of your Firm or Insurance offer. If you have not, or would like to apply for a different course, it’s time to explore other opportunities.
  2. Check out the University of Stirling’s Clearing List to see what courses are available. You can also find this list on UCAS.
  3. If you spot a course you’re interested in, don’t hesitate! Phone our Clearing helpline immediately so that we can tell you more about your chosen course and guide you through the next steps. Don’t forget to have your UCAS Personal ID number ready – this allows us to view your UCAS application and speeds up the process for you.
  4. In most cases, we'll be able to give you an immediate decision over the telephone. If you're offered a place on your chosen course, you will receive an email from the University of Stirling to confirm the verbal offer and to provide further information on what happens next.
  5. Finally, you must then confirm your place at the University of Stirling via UCAS. Once you are happy with your choice, sign in to Track, click “Add Clearing choice” and fill in the details for your new University of Stirling course. This confirms that you definitely wish to accept your offer, and once your details have been verified, Track will update to show that you have been formally accepted by the University.

When you get your exam results, you may find you have done a lot better than you’d expected. If you have exceeded the conditions of your Firm choice and would now like to apply for a different course at the University of Stirling, you can do this through Adjustment.

With your improved results, you may be eligible for an advanced entry – which means you will be able to start your course in 2nd year. You may also be able to apply for a scholarship of other financial support.

Please note: You have five days from the date you meet the conditions of your Firm choice to register and secure a place through Adjustment.
