Clearing is open! Study at Petroc!

If you haven't yet secured a place at university or college for the 2022/23 academic year, you can now apply to study higher education through the UCAS Clearing system.

Further information

Clearing is an important part of the higher education application cycle because it enables universities and colleges to match available places on degree programmes with students wishing to enter higher education.

Whether you are currently studying at Level 3 or A Levels and intend to progress into higher education in 2022/23, have taken some time out and would like to pick up your studies, or want to work towards a career change, now is an ideal opportunity for you to apply to study with us.

You are eligible for Clearing if you have yet to apply to UCAS to study in 2021/22. If you have already applied in the current application year, you are eligible for Clearing if:

  • You have not withdrawn your application
  • You hold no offers
  • Your offers have not been confirmed because you have not met the conditions (e.g. you have not achieved the required grades)
  • You have declined your offers or not responded by the due date, or
  • Your offers have not been confirmed and you have declined any alternative offers from the same university

Clearing is now open. If you have applied through UCAS you can use Clearing to select a Petroc course. If you have not already applied to UCAS and wish to study with Petroc you can apply directly to us through our degree course pages.

Please call our Clearing Team to talk through your options on 01271 852330.

UCAS has produced a comprehensive UCAS Clearing 2022/23 guide to help you through the Clearing process.

If you have not yet applied to UCAS and are only just considering a course, you are not too late to apply for 2022 entry. Apply directly by going to our degree course pages, or call our Clearing Team on 01271 852330 to talk through the programmes available and your options.

At Petroc, we offer a range of interesting and challenging Foundation, BA (Hons) and BSc (Hons) degree courses in a variety of subjects. These are validated by our partners the University of Plymouth and the University of Bolton. We also offer HNC programmes and a range of higher and degree apprenticeships.

If you are interested in applying through Clearing (or directly to any of our available programmes) we recommend you speak to the Petroc HE Team. They will be able to provide advice about what programmes are available and provide an indication of whether you possess the relevant entry requirements.
