If you are yet to secure a place at university, or have changed your mind about which course to study or the university you want to attend, Clearing is for you.
If you already have your exam results but you have no offers or haven't applied to university yet, you can use Clearing straight away. If you had conditional offers but your exam results didn't go to plan, or you did better than you expected to, you can use Clearing from Results Day.
If your UCAS points do not match the course requirements but you are keen to enrol on a certain course, it may be worth enquiring with universities to see if they offer a foundation year.
At the University of Derby you can choose to start on one of our foundation levels:
Year Zero - for Engineering and Arts courses, this route provides a smooth transition to degree studies
Foundation degrees and HND - once complete you can transfer to the final year of a bachelors degree
Degrees with foundation year - if you don’t have the necessary formal qualifications you can choose a four-year course including a foundation year stage
