Swansea is a home away from home for students from all around the globe, who are looking for a place to grow academically, personally and want to set their careers on the right path. 

If you are an international student, who is interested in applying to study an undergraduate course at Swansea starting this September, Clearing may be a great option for you.

What is clearing, and what does it mean for international students?

Clearing is an opportunity to secure a place at the university for students who either didn’t apply during the main cycle, weren’t successful in their application or declined their offers. It gives them a possibility to apply for vacant course spaces after the release of the exam results.

As most students in the UK get their results of A-levels (a UK subject based qualification) on 15 August, the timeline of clearing is set around this date. Clearing runs from 5 July until the start of term in September. if you'd like to receive our reminders and tips during Clearing, sign up for our Clearing updates.

5 out of 5 stars
Swansea University is a brilliant university for all sorts of reasons. They are extremely helpful with any information needed for students coming from outside the UK. I personally did not get the grades needed to start my course immediately, so they gave me a call and talked to me about my options with a foundation year and what that would entail, which eased my anxiety a lot...
