Key Clearing dates 2021

Before 5 July 2021

Start your research

5 July 2021

Clearing opens

Clearing opens for 2021 entry. If you already have your results, you can apply now. 

Contact our team on 0300 555 5030 or request a call back to speak to one of our Clearing advisors at a time that suits you.

The fastest way to secure your offer is to call, and while we'd always recommend calling in the first instance, you can also apply online. Message @salforduni on Facebook or Twitter with the word ‘Clearing’. Once we've received your message, we'll take you through the next steps.

Throughout July 2021

Explore your options

Now's a great time to learn more about the universities you’re interested in. Look out for opportunities to explore virtual tours, get to grips with different courses and find out what student life is like.

10 August 2021

Results day

Today is A-level results day and SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority) results day. You can apply for a place through Clearing as soon as you have your results.

Here at the University of Salford, our phone lines will open between 8:00 and 19:00 on 10 August. Results day can be busy, so we recommend contacting us as soon as possible to discuss your options. The fastest way to secure your offer is to call us, so contact our team on 0300 555 5030. 

While calling is the quickest way to apply for a course, if you're not able to call, you can alternatively apply online. Message @salforduni on Facebook or Twitter with the word ‘Clearing’. Once we've received your message, we'll take you through the next steps.

Before you apply, make sure you know what course you're interested in studying (search our Clearing courses here) and have details of your qualifications - including GCSE results - ready. 

Adjustment opens

Adjustment opens. If you've met and exceeded the conditions for your firm choice, you might be thinking about looking for an alternative course. Adjustment is a chance for you to reconsider where and what to study. If you've had a conditional firm choice accepted (and therefore made into an unconditional firm choice) you could potentially swap your place for one on another course you prefer. Learn more about Adjustment in our guide

12 August 2021

GCSE results day

If we need your GCSE results to confirm your place, now’s the time to update us.

18 August 2021

Adjustment closes

This is the last day eligible applicants can use Adjustment.

The rest of August & September 2021

Last few places left

There may still be some places available on courses in late August and September, so if you’ve only just decided to apply, you may still get a place. However, courses fill up quickly in Clearing so we recommend not leaving it too late.

Contact us

If you're ready to apply for a course, contact our team today. Our friendly and experienced Clearing advisors are here to support you with your application and any questions you may have.
