Who can apply?

If you are exploring your options around results day this year, you can still make an application in time to start this September.

Entry requirements

We have two routes to entry, one based on UCAS tariff points and an interview, and the other on an assessment day and interview.

1. UCAS tariff points and interview

Our Clearing entry requirements for our law, business and accounting degrees are 112 UCAS points (BBC at A level or equivalent) plus a telephone interview.

We can offer you a place over the telephone and you'll be invited to a Business School Workshop where you can gain a fee waiver.

2. Professional Workshop and interview

If you do not have 112 UCAS points you can still apply through our assessment-based entry route. You’ll be invited to a Professional Workshop, where you’ll take part in four tasks to help us assess your suitability for the course.

The crucial thing for us is that you have the potential to succeed and thrive on your chosen course, which is why we interview all our students.

The process:

Apply through UCAS. If you already have a UCAS application, your status will appear in your track page with your Clearing number, which you need when calling us. You can then 'add a Clearing choice' on your exisiting application. If you are applying for the first time you will still need to register and make an application on UCAS.

Call us on 0203 4324 887 and check our Clearing 2018 availability. We'll be able to talk you through the next steps in the process.

Visit us. The best way to see if we’re the right choice for you, is to visit us in person. We have open events throughout June-September for Clearing students or we can arrange a personal tours tours at a time that suits you.

Once you've applied you'll also be invited to attend a Professional Workshop to gain a fee waiver.

If you're holding an offer and want some information about what's next, please go to what to expect.

We have a number of places secured with our recommended student accommodation provider, Tufnell House, for students going through Clearing and looking to live in student accommodation.

We also try to ensure that Pearson College London students are placed together at their chosen accommodation provider where possible so you'll get to know your peers before you start your course.

Here's how to get the most out of clearing:

Research, research and more research

Clearing is a bit like going shopping in a busy supermarket that only sells potential career directions. It's best to do your research first! Check out the clearing lists on UCAS Search.

Speak to your teachers, family and friends (they may have bright ideas you hadn't thought of).

Visit university websites and check out their social media, do they look like the place you could be living and studying?

Be bold and pick up the phone

Once you're happy with your research, make the all-important phone calls to universities. Be bold; this is your chance to ask the well-researched questions that give you a better understanding about what the degree can offer you. Ask the University what the modules, projects and industry connections are? Why not see if you can book a visit to the University to see what it's really like? Set a good impression and be ready to answer any questions they may ask you (have all your details to hand). Enthusiasm sells. Approach universities and colleges with a positive and confident approach: you’re also selling your potential to be their next top-notch student.

Start your path to success

Clearing gives you another chance to find a new route that may suit you better! Always remember your motivations, question whether the degree will set you on your career path. Degrees are launch pads into your future career, make sure your chosen degree will give you everything you need to reach your aspirations.

What you are doing is innovative and pioneering in the University sector. I believe the whole Clearing experience should be seen as a much more positive part of the university application process and not a last resort panic option. Preparation by the students beforehand is key and vital to the whole process. When my son was doing his research for Clearing he came across Pearson College London and saw it as a real opportunity to do something fresh and employment-focused rather than a traditional academic degree. I think Pearson College London has the potential to really offer something different for students- it is the way of the future.

Entering Clearing was a very stressful time so it was extremely beneficial to have help and support. I was able to turn to my head of sixth form who offered her advice during this time, as well as being able to speak to the registry team at Pearson College London which made the process less stressful and seamless.
