Our step-by-step guide to Clearing

You have to apply online through UCAS for all of our full-time undergraduate courses (certificates of higher education, foundation degrees and BA, BSc and LLB degrees). The UCAS deadline for applications is 30 June, but, after this deadline, you can still apply through UCAS Clearing. (Please note: you can only apply to one course through UCAS Clearing.) 

Securing a place at Birkbeck through UCAS Clearing couldn't be easier: 

  1. Phone us on 020 3907 0700
  2. We will take your details and then connect you to an academic in your subject area, who will be able to answer your questions about the course and tell you more about studying in the evening at Birkbeck. In the majority of cases, the academic will be able to let you know immediately whether we can offer you a place on one of our courses. 
  3. You will then receive an email from Birkbeck confirming your offer. The email will also explain how to accept your offer via UCAS. 
  4. The final step is to sign up to our Clearing Open Day on Saturday 19 August, so you can get to know Birkbeck and meet staff and students.
