Clearing for international students

The University of Birmingham has vacancies available through Clearing for International (non-EU) applicants in summer 2015. These are for applicants seeking to enter the University in autumn 2015.

The only programmes and subject areas which we do not have any vacancies for are:

  • Psychology - all programmes
  • Medicine - A100/A101
  • Dentistry - A200 
  • Nursing - B700
  • Drama – all programmes
  • English with Creative Writing - Q3W8 
  • Social Work – L501/L502

For all other programmes, which are available, you can find out more about them through our course finder.

Please note that for some areas we may consider applicants who have achieved slightly lower grades than our standard entry requirements. You can view A-level and IB standard entry requirements on our course finder, for other qualifications you may wish to view our standard country specific entry requirements. Please note that all applicants must satisfy our standard English language requirements for their intended area of study.

Please note that you may only apply for an International Clearing vacancy if you are a non-EU student (Overseas fees-payer) and if you are genuinely eligible for Clearing: that is, you have applied through UCAS and you have received your results but you are not currently holding an offer anywhere else. 

If you are interested in applying for a place through International Clearing and are eligible to do so, you can complete our online International Clearing enquiry form from Friday 3 July to register your interest. You will need to provide personal information as well your UCAS Personal ID number (if you have one), details of the programme/s you are interested in and your educational background (including uploading copies of transcripts and certificates where possible). We will then advise you on whether your qualifications are suitable for your chosen programme/s. If we decide to make you an offer, we will then advise you to submit a Clearing application via UCAS track. 

If you do not meet the requirements for entry directly onto one of our degree programmes you may want to consider our Birmingham Foundation Academy.
