Going through Clearing?

Going through Clearing after getting your exam results? It’s really important to let us know if your course, or university or college details have changed, as it could affect how much student finance you can get.

If you don’t let us know as soon as possible, you might not get paid in time for the start of your course. And don’t forget to update your term-time address if it’s changed too.

Watch our Clearing film to find out what you need to do.

And for more information, go to our dedicated page on the student finance zone.

Part-time undergraduate students

There’s lots of help available to students studying a part-time undergraduate course. Most students can get help to cover their tuition fees. Students starting on or after 1 August 2018 can also get help towards their living costs.

There’s also extra help available if you have a disability, including a long-term health condition, a mental-health condition or a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia or dyspraxia. Visit our dedicated student finance zone on The Student Room for more information about part-time study.

Already a student?

If you’ve decided to take a break from or leave your course, you need to contact us as soon as possible and let you university or college know so they can tell us.

If you don’t, you might end up being overpaid. If this happens, you might have to repay the amount you’ve been overpaid earlier and before your income is over the repayment threshold.
