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 to Birkbeck through UCAS Clearing. Find out more about UCAS

While you are waiting to get your results, you can sign up to our Clearing updates, including hints and tips in advance of results day. 

Follow these steps to get your place 

  1. Browse our full-time courses to find the one that's right for you. 
  2. Phone us on +44 (0)20 3907 0700 or fill out and submit our online Clearing application form
  3. We will take your details and put you in touch with an academic who can answer your questions about the course, tell you more about studying in the evening and, in the majority of cases, offer you a place immediately. (Please note: you can only apply to one course through UCAS Clearing.) 
  4. We will email you a confirmation of your offer and explain how to accept your offer via UCAS. 
  5. Finally, come to our Clearing Open Day on Saturday 18 August 2018 or come to our Open Evening on Wednesday 5 September 2018, so you can explore our campus and meet staff and your fellow students.
