UCAS Clearing and Adjustment

2017 entry UCAS Clearing opens on 5 July. From this date we will be able to consider applications from students who have their examination results. In the meantime, please have a look through our web pages to see the programmes we offer and feel free to send us an email at to make an enquiry. Kindly note that as vacancies fill up, courses may close to applications at any time during the clearing period.

During the main clearing period from A level results day on 17 August, we will run a telephone hotline which you will be able to call to make an application for one of the programmes for which we have vacancies. Up to 17 August, please email to make an application or enquiry.

What is Clearing and Adjustment?

Clearing helps students who have not achieved the results they were expecting to find the right degree for them.

Adjustment allows students who have achieved higher than expected results to upgrade to a different degree.

Campus Tours

Campus Tours will give you the opportunity to find out detailed information on your programme of study. To attend, simply head to reception in the main SOAS building on Wednesdays and Fridays at 2pm.


SOAS offers both private and intercollegiate halls for our Undergraduate students. Many of our first year students also choose to rent private accommodation. Coming through Clearing, it's not too late for you to find accommodation you are happy with. 

You can find out more about accommodation options by visiting our accomodation page. 


It is important to tell Student Finance as soon as possible that you will be studying at SOAS, and be sure to use the generic degree title. More information on degree titles and other funding queries can be found on our finance pages.
