Clearing at the University of Derby

Clearing 2017 has now closed. If you're looking to study with us before next September, we also have a range of full-time and part-time undergraduate courses starting in January.

Clearing 2017

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.
