You can apply to Leeds Trinity through Clearing if you're not holding an offer from another university.

That could be because you've got different grades than expected, you've declined your offers, or you just wanted to wait to apply.

There's no need to panic on results day - here's everything you need to know.

Top tips for Clearing

We want you to find a course you're going to love, so follow our top tips to help make your Clearing experience as smooth as possible.

  1. Do your research

    Take a look at the courses and universities you're interested in before you get your results - don't wait until the day. 

    The more you prepare, the easier Clearing will be.

  2. Be prepared

    When you get your results, make sure you have your UCAS ID and your qualifications to hand, find somewhere quiet and call us to chat about your application.

    If you have the title and UCAS code of the course you're interested in, that will help speed up the process.

  3. Ask questions

    We're here to help you find the right course.

    Don’t be afraid to ask as many questions as you need about the course you're interested in and life at Leeds Trinity.

  4. Confirm your place

    Found the perfect course and received a verbal offer?

    The next step is to log in to UCAS and add us as your Clearing choice.

There are no age limits when it comes to studying at university.

We welcome plenty of mature students to campus every year.

If you already have your results, you can apply from Wednesday 5 July when Clearing opens.

We know that no two applicants are the same.

We base our offers on more than just your predicted grades – they're also based on your experience, your previous academic performance, and your personal statement.

Make sure you check your UCAS Hub on Results Day – just because you don't achieve your expected grades doesn't mean you haven't secured your place at Leeds Trinity.

Well done!

If you'd like to choose a different course or university, you can decline your place through UCAS and apply somewhere new using Clearing.

We've got lots of accommodation on campus, offered on a first come first served basis.

Once you’ve accepted your place at Leeds Trinity through UCAS Hub, your Accommodation team will email you, inviting you to book your accommodation online.

If there is no availability in our halls, we'll give you the chance to join our waiting list and you'll be contacted if a room becomes available.

Alternatively, you can contact Unipol, the student housing charity in Leeds. They'll help you find suitable student accommodation.

It's really important that you apply for student finance straight away if you haven't already. 

You don't need to wait until you've got a confirmed place to apply, so don't wait until you've got UCAS offers.

If you apply for funding late, your money may be late!

If you have already applied for finance but your course or university has changed through Clearing, you must update your details as soon as possible.

When you've spoken to us on the Clearing Hotline and got a verbal offer, log in to your UCAS Hub to add Leeds Trinity as your Clearing choice.

You'll then be able to see the live status of your application.

When your place is confirmed, congratulations! You're coming to study at Leeds Trinity! We'll be in touch with everything you need to do next.
