Think it's too late to start your studies this September? Think again.

If you've been thinking about starting your Higher Education journey and taking your career to the next level, there is still time to apply for September 2024 entry at University Centre Leeds through Clearing.

What is 'Clearing'?

Clearing is when UCAS provides applicants with the opportunity to apply for university places which haven’t yet been filled, outside of the normal equal consideration application window.

Depending on your circumstances, you have the following options:

Already applied to an institution through UCAS?

If you have already applied somewhere through UCAS, you will need to call our Clearing Hotline to enquire about applying for 2024 entry.

You can call us on 0113 235 4450

Phone lines are open 9:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday

Our friendly Admissions team are there to answer all of your questions and guide you through the application process.

Not applied through UCAS but decided you want to study a degree? 

You can apply directly to University Centre Leeds without going through UCAS, avoiding the application fee.

You can use our applicant portal to submit your application if:

  • You have not already applied through UCAS for 24/25 entry
  • You wish to study a full-time undergraduate course exclusively at University Centre Leeds
