Clearing

Clearing is the last chance for you to secure your place at the University of Plymouth for September

At Plymouth, you are much more than just your exam results, which is why we treat every application individually.

You will be able to apply through Clearing if you:

  • haven’t met the conditions of your offers
  • haven’t made a UCAS application this year
  • haven’t received any offers (or none that you wanted to accept).
