Clearing Hotline 2021 Now Open

If you have yet to accept an offer, wish to enroll on an alternative course, or failed to achieve the entry requirements for your first choice, expert call handlers will be there to offer guidance on the availability of courses, eligibility, interviews, course details, and other support services.

There are still some spaces left for students in various course areas. For the most up-to-date list please check the Clearing page.

The University of Cumbria's friendly and supportive call handlers are here to talk you through your choices and any course queries you might have. Additionally, course tutors are on call to offer advice on your options and give you the ‘low down' on what it’s really like to study at the University of Cumbria.

Course vacancies will be kept up to date on the University website and students can follow the University of Cumbria on Twitter (@CumbriaUni), Instagram (@cumbriauni) or Facebook throughout the day.

From Monday 5th July, in the lead-up to results day, the Course Enquiry Cente will be open to answer your questions Monday to Friday 09:00 – 17:00.
