Clearing and Adjustment

Start Your Adventure

Clearing is the UCAS process that allows students the opportunity to find a course at university if they haven’t yet managed to secure one. Whether you have changed your mind about the course or university you want to study at, or if your exam results were not what you expected, you can use Clearing to secure a place at university for September 2019.

Adjustment is the process when you have met or exceeded the conditions of your firm choice on UCAS, enabling you to look for a different course with higher entry requirements.

Situated in the heart of a beautiful and historic city, the University of Lincoln is a top 20 UK university according to the Guardian University Guide 2020. Our friendly Clearing hotline and Adjustment hotline advisors can help guide you through the processes.

Start Making Friends for Life

You can start making new university friends before you even arrive at Lincoln by registering with our Friends for Life initiative.

The scheme uses the 2019 Applicants Facebook page to connect you with other like-minded students waiting to join us at Lincoln by matching interests in topics like music, sport, film, or university clubs and societies.
