You could start university this September! Here's how you apply to the University of South Wales through Clearing:
Our Team will need to know the name of the course you’re interested in and you'll need to provide information about all your qualifications – from your GCSEs to your most recent course of study.
You will need to provide copies of your qualification certificates if you’re made an offer, so make sure you have them handy.If you don’t quite meet the criteria for your chosen course, our team will do their very best to find you a suitable alternative.
If we can make you an offer of a place, or an invitation to attend an interview, we’ll ask you to provide some details so we can send you further information. The details will include your name, address, date of birth, email address, etc.
If you are offered a Clearing place at USW but you haven't yet applied for student finance, you need to apply now at www.gov.uk/studentfinance.
It takes at least six weeks to process your application, but their initial assessment lets you have some money as close to the start of your course as possible.
If you've already applied for student finance but your course, university, college or tuition fee loan amount have changed due to the Clearing process, you'll need to tell them of the changes immediately to limit any delays in receiving your money. Login to your online student finance account to change your student finance application at www.gov.uk/studentfinance.
For further information please contact the USW Student Money Advice Team.

If you've already applied to the University of South Wales tand you've got the grades that you needed, congratulations! You don't need to do anything else.

Should your application show as unsuccessful on Track and you would now like to study a different subject area, you may wish to consider applying for an alternative course through Clearing.

USW student blogger Charlotte explains A-level results day. "I remember that it is a very stressful and emotional time as you wait to find out whether or not you've got a place at your first choice university.
I made this short video to give you guys some tips on what to expect on the day and how to deal with every scenario that could come up (including University Clearing)!"
