If you still want to study a University course this year but don’t have a place, don’t despair. There’s still a chance for you to find a place on a course at South Devon College through Clearing. You can go through Clearing even if you haven’t already applied for a place via UCAS. To find out more about clearing, visit the UCAS Website.

The following steps will show you how you can prepare for Clearing.


CLEARING ADVICE LINE: 08000 21 31 81

Before calling our Advice Line

See which course is right for you


Before you do anything stop and think about which course is right for you. After looking at the courses available, have a look in more detail at the ones you think might be right for you. You can find information about a specific course on the right hand column of the clearing course list. This will give you an idea about what they involve and the entry requirements. Check that you meet the minimum entry requirements that are on the course pages.

There is also a University Centre Open Day on Friday 17th August if you would like to visit the college in person.


Ready to call – Do it now!

As there are only a limited number of places available, the sooner you call the Advice Line the better your chances are of finding a place on the course of your choice. It’s important that you make the call yourself, because there will be questions asked that only you can answer, and questions that you want answered.

Information you will need to have:

  • Your UCAS application number (if you have already applied)
  • Your L3 Qualification Results (A Levels, BTEC)
  • Your GCSE Maths & English results


Making the call – 08000 21 31 81

  • DO make the phone call yourself and make sure you are uninterrupted
  • DO be persistent if you can’t get through straight away
  • DO be sure you want the place as you may be offered it on the spot when you phone.
  • CALL the Clearing Advice Line now!

If you are eligible and space is available you will be advised accordingly by the Clearing Advice Line. You will still need to submit your application via UCAS Track with the agreed timeframe, using the institution code S32, the course code and by selecting the ‘Add Clearing Choice’ button. Once we have received your application, it will be processed and the outcome communicated by the next working day.
