Craven College Clearing 2018

Craven College has places through clearing for Animal Management, Business in the Service Sector, Young Children's Learning & Development and Make-up & Prosthetics.

Clearing starts on the 5 July and continues up until 23 October 2018, and is a way for universities and colleges to fill any spaces left for the new academic year. It is part of the UCAS application process and provides prospective students who do not have an offer with another chance of finding a place.

In order to apply through Clearing, you need to have your A Level or BTEC results. A Level results for 2018 are available from the 16 August.


How does it work?

You are eligible for Clearing if:

  • You applied BEFORE 30 June and were not made any offers or you declined all your offers.
  • You applied AFTER 30 June then you automatically go into Clearing.
  • You did not meet the conditions of your firm or insurance choice, and they declined you, or you declined any alternative offers.

Once you are in Clearing, you need to contact us at Craven College directly and not UCAS.


Next Steps

First of all, keep a list of your results and your UCAS ID and Clearing number which will be needed when discussing your next steps.
You will then need to pick up the phone and give us a call on 01756 693 881 to discuss your options with us. We will review your application and get an answer back to you as soon as possible. Before you accept anything, check that the course is RIGHT for you and it is something you really want to do.

Once you have made your decision and have had confirmation from us, you will then need to go onto UCAS Track and enter your choice. If you haven't already done so, you will then need to get your student finance in place, take a look at our Funding and Finance for more information.
