What is Clearing?

Clearing is a chance to get a place on a course after the main application deadline has passed. If you're successful you'll be able to start university in September 2019.

Clearing opens in July and you have from now until the end of September to get a course place. But remember, courses may fill up quickly so get in touch as soon as you've decided what you want to do.

Before you come to university it's important to understand how much it will cost and what funding you will receive.

  • Full-time tuition fees - you pay £9,250 a year for full-time undergraduate degree course (including a foundation year) and £6,150 for a full-time foundation degree, HND and other qualifications below degree level. Find out what is and isn't included in your tuition fees here.
  • Tuition fee loan - if you have already applied you must remember to update your university and course details as soon as possible. If you haven't already, apply to the Student Loan Company for a tuition fee loan to cover the full cost of your fees each year.
  • Maintenance loan - as a full-time student you can apply to the Student Loan Company for a maintenance loan to help with your living costs (food, accommodation and travel) - the amount you're entitled to depends on your household income, where you live and where you study. After accepting your place, remember to update your student finance information or apply if you haven't already.
  • Teesside University Advance - you also receive an iPad installed with Office 365 software and University information, a keyboard and up to £300 credit to buy learning resources.
