How does Clearing and Adjustment work?

You can apply to Norland through Clearing if you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college. Clearing is open for 2020 entry from 6 July. You can use Clearing if:

  • You’re applying after 30 June
  • You didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • You didn’t meet the conditions of your offers

If you’ve met and exceeded the conditions of your conditional firm choice, you can choose to go through Adjustment to reconsider where and what you wish to study. You can keep your original unconditional firm offer while making enquiries with other providers. Adjustment for 2020 entry opens on 13 August.
