How to apply through Clearing and Adjustment

You can begin at King's this September. Zara shares her story and how she got her place at King’s through Clearing.


1. Check that you are eligible for clearing or adjustment

2. Find out if the course you’re interested in has places available

3. Click on the course name to find out more about it and make sure it’s right for you

4. Call the admissions office on +44 (0)20 3660 2666


When you call, you’ll need the following details ready:

  • Your UCAS Personal ID (if you’ve applied to UCAS this year)
  • A current email address you have access to
  • Details of the subjects you’ve studied, your qualifications and grades

What we'll ask you

We’ll ask you whether you are in clearing (you can check this on Track) or whether you are asking about adjustment (where you have achieved grades higher than expected). 

We may also ask you some questions about where you live, and whether you’ve previously had an offer from King’s. If English isn’t your first language we will ask what English language proficiency tests you have taken. 


What happens next?

When you speak to our clearing and adjustment advisors, we will consider your application carefully and if we are able to offer you a place to study with us, we will let you know on the phone.

If we are able to offer you a place, we will email you with your next steps, which will involve taking actions on  UCAS by a certain deadline. 

Important note

Please do not refer your application to King’s through clearing unless we ask you to. We will not be able to consider unsolicited referrals. 

Please call our admissions office instead.
