To help you make your decision, we have pulled together some answers to questions that we often get asked about Clearing.
You’re eligible for Clearing if:
- You have your results for the qualifications that you have taken.
- You don’t currently hold any offers through UCAS – or you haven’t applied through UCAS for 2018.
If you want to apply to AUB during Clearing and you already hold offers through UCAS, you can be released. You just need to contact your current firm choice and ask for them to release you into Clearing. You will then be eligible.
We consider all applications as a whole and welcome enquiries from anyone who is ready for university study.
Clearing is now open and you can apply through UCAS as soon as you have all of your results. You can talk to us before then even if you’re still waiting for results.

Once you have been released, you can apply to study at AUB. Please do get in touch with us if you’d like more help with this.
You’ll need to have your qualifications, which courses you’re interested in, and your contact details.
If you have already applied through UCAS, you’ll need your UCAS Personal ID and your Clearing Number (which you can find on UCAS Track).
We’ll email you to confirm that your application is complete. We might also ask you to send us your digital portfolio or a digital audition, if the course you’re applying for requires it. We’ll email you to explain how to do this. This will be sent on to our course teams for them to review.
Once we have all of your details, we’ll make a decision as soon as possible. If we need more information, or if there is a delay, we will keep you updated by email. If you’re successful, we’ll email you an offer with instructions on how to accept your place via UCAS Track.
Once your place is confirmed through UCAS, we’ll send you our welcome information to help you prepare for the start of your course.
We do not hold interviews for Clearing so we can get our decisions to you faster. Clearing applicants for our BA (Hons) Acting and BA (Hons) Dance courses will need to provide a digital audition, but we’ll send you more information about this when you apply. You can also check our audition guidelines for Dance and for Acting so you know what the Teams are looking for.
If you’re applying for a course that requires a portfolio, we’ll ask you to send us a link to your digital portfolio. We’ll email you to explain how to do this. We recommend that you take a look at our course specific portfolio guidelines for help with preparing your portfolio.
If you’ve already applied for finance then you can change the university and course on your Student Finance application online.
If you haven’t applied yet, don’t worry. There’s still time to arrange this and our Clearing team can help you with the process.
You don’t need to apply through Clearing for these courses – we are still accepting applications at this time of year.
