Please note the following course are closed to new applicants for September 2018 so unavailable through Clearing: Social Work and Occupational Therapy.

What is ‘Clearing’?

Clearing is the period of time from July to October where places are finalised for 2018 entry into university.  Applicants already in the UCAS system will choose their Clearing choice through UCAS, and those who haven’t yet applied can either complete the UCAS application or apply to us via our direct application form. 

You can go through clearing if you:

    • Haven’t done quite as well as expected and therefore have been unable to secure their first or second choice of degree course.
    • Have met or exceeded the conditions of their original offer and now wish to be considered for a degree course at Wrexham Glyndŵr University (this is known as Adjustment).
    • Haven’t applied yet but want to start university in September 2018 entry.
