Confirmation and Clearing at Plymouth University


& clearing

If you already have your results, but haven’t yet applied to us, you can apply right now through Clearing (no need to wait!). Visit the UCAS website for more information.

If you have not yet received your results, our confirmation and clearing call centre will be open from 8.00am on Thursday 14 August. Please bookmark this page and revisit on Thursday 14 August for more information.


To find out more about Clearing, visit the UCAS website .

What UCAS applicants should do ...

Step 1 - Spend a little time thinking about what you want to study.

  • On A level results day (Thursday 14 August 2014), check to see if there are vacancies available on the course of your choice via our course vacancies list. This list will be made available from A level results day until the end of Clearing.
  • Check that you meet or exceed the minimum entry requirements that are detailed within the course pages
  • If you do not meet the minimum entry requirements, you may be able to find an alternative route through one of our Partner Colleges. Please contact Partner College for alternative courses/routes.

Step 2 - If you meet the minimum entry requirements, and there are vacancies on the course of your choice, contact our Confirmation and Clearing call centre to register your course application interest:

Ensure you have the following to hand:

  • your UCAS number and/or Clearing number
  • your level 3 qualification results i.e. A levels, IB, BTEC
  • your GCSE Maths, English and Science grades

Step 3 - If you are eligible, and a vacancy exists, we will recorded your interest on our system. You will need to make your application through UCAS Track as soon as possible if you decide that you want to be considered for that course at Plymouth and enter the details of the course and institution (P60) using the ‘Add Clearing Choice’ button.

Once we have received your application, it will be processed and the outcome communicated by the next working day. We reserve the right to decline your application if the course is full, so we encourage you to go online as soon as possible to make your Clearing application.

You must telephone the University to find out whether we can make you an offer before referring yourself through TRACK.

If you don’t have access to your UCAS account, you can phone UCAS Customer Services on 0871 468 0468.

You can only enter details for one course choice. Only enter a Clearing choice if you want to accept the course we offer you. Only once you have made your application, can we confirm your place.

Step 4 - Once we have accepted you, we will send you enrolment information by email or post.


Use our online service to check the status of your place after A level results have been released (Thursday 14 August 2014).

Do not call the University unless you have first looked at the status of your offer online. If your place has been confirmed, there is no need to contact the University as well. Information welcoming you to the University will be sent by email or post a few days after your results have been made available to us.

You can also check your accommodation status online after A level results have been released (Thursday 14 August 2014).

If your place has not been confirmed, then contact our Confirmation and Clearing Call Centre on +441752585858 to find out the current status of your application.
