Clearing and Adjustment 2018

Didn’t get a place on your chosen course? Don’t worry. Every year, the University of Stirling helps talented students just like you find a place on one of our undergraduate courses through UCAS Clearing.

Clearing doesn't open until 5 July 2018 – but if you'd like to register your interest now, a member of our team will be sure to get in touch with you later this summer to chat about your options and tell you all about the courses we still have available.

  • What is Clearing?

    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.

  • How do I apply through Clearing?

    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 list of courses available for Scottish and EU students, and courses in Clearing for all other students. 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.

  • What is Adjustment?

    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 Year 2. 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.

  • How do I apply through Adjustment?

    Applying to the University of Stirling through Adjustment is incredibly simple:

    1. On Results Day, you should immediately consult UCAS Track to see if you have met the conditions of your chosen course.
    2. There is no published vacancy list for Adjustment. Check out the University of Stirling’s list of courses available for Scottish and EU students, and courses in Clearing for all other students. You can also find this list on UCAS.
    3. If you spot a course you’re interested in, don’t hesitate! Phone our helpline immediately so that we can tell you more about your chosen course and guide you through the next steps.
    4. If you're offered a place on your chosen course, you will then receive an email from the University of Stirling to confirm the offer and to provide further information on next steps – including opportunities to visit the campus.
    5. Finally, you must call or email the University to confirm you wish to accept your place. Our Admissions team will then update UCAS and your confirmed place at the University of Stirling will show in your Track screen.
