Top Tips for Clearing video transcript

My name is Helen Mercado and I'm Head of Admissions at the University of Derby.

Do you still need to find a place at university for September?

Maybe because you've changed your mind about your course or choice of uni or have only just decided that now is the time for you to enter higher education. Clearing gives you an opportunity to find a place or make a change. 

Here are our top tips.

Number one:

Research courses in Clearing. Check what places Universities have available through Clearing. Here at Derby, you can do this through our website. Can't make up your mind? We have flexible options where you can choose to study more than one subject. Make a list of the ones you're interested in.

Number two:

Look for similar courses. If you're struggling to find the exact course that you're interested in try to think more broadly. Are there similar courses that you might like? You can also view our courses by subject area.

Number three:

Ask for advice. Talk to family, teachers, and friends and ask them what they think. You can also chat online with our students to find out what life at Derby is really like.

Number four:

Prepare to make contact. Get organised. You'll need your UCAS ID number and details of all your qualifications to hand for when you make your Clearing enquiry.

Number five:

Get in touch. Once you're ready, our phone lines are open and our friendly team are ready to take your call we may even be able to make you an offer today. You can also get in touch with us anytime through social media. We'll help you explore your options so you can look forward to a bright future and new opportunities.
