In Focus

A Guide to Clearing

We understand the thought of going through clearing may seem like a daunting one, so we want to be here to help guide you through and make it a straightforward process rather than a stressful one.

It’s important to do your research and pick something you are genuinely interested in and we have plenty of resources to help you from a dedicated clearing page (packed full of helpful information and links including; how clearing works, adjustment information, equivalence of qualifications and more), student testimonials, blog posts and of course multiple ways to get in touch with one of our clearing team who are on hand to help you.

Come to our advice day

You will get to speak to faculty staff face to face who will be able to talk you through the courses available to you through clearing. You may even discover a course that you would never have thought about doing!

We will be uploading real life clearing experiences from current students who have gone through clearing.

Read about Lewis’s experience where his clearing choice was massively different to his original choice or Rachel, whose clearing choice has paved the way to her being able to do her first choice degree


Hear it from the horse’s mouth!

Once you know what courses are available through clearing, why not check out what our students actually think about that course. We can go on and on about how great this and that course is but nothing beats hearing it straight from our students’ mouths, who have experienced it first-hand.

Visit our study@ulster Youtube page for a whole range of video testimonials for our undergraduate courses or visit the specific course page and click on “Testimonials” down the left hand side of the page.
