Clearing and Adjustment

Clearing and Adjustment give you another chance to choose a university course.

Apply now

If you haven’t yet applied or have changed your mind you don’t have to wait until Clearing to apply. View our list of courses for availability and see the UCAS website for more information.

If you've used all five of your choices and are not holding an offer, then you can still add another for free. Lancaster University courses are available right now via UCAS Extra.

What is Clearing?

You can apply for a course through Clearing if you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college, and the course still has places.

You can use Clearing if:

  • you’re applying after 30 June 2019
  • you didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • you didn’t meet the conditions of your offers

Clearing opens on 5 July 2019. We will publish a list of Lancaster University courses that have places available through Clearing.

If you want to be ready for when you get your results, read our Tips for Clearing, and have a look at the What is Clearing? page from UCAS.

What is Adjustment?

If you've met and exceeded the conditions of your conditional firm choice, you can choose to go through Adjustment to reconsider where and what you wish to study. You can keep your original unconditional firm offer while making enquiries with other providers. Adjustment opens on 15 August 2019.
