Find out about Adjustment and how you can apply for a place using this service.
What Adjustment is
Adjustment is a UCAS service that allows you to apply for a place on an alternative course if you exceed the terms of your firm offer.
The UCAS website explains what happens in Adjustment.
Adjustment opens on Thursday 13 August 2020.
The time you have to use Adjustment is limited. You have five days (including weekends) to use Adjustment starting from either:
- Thursday 13 August 2020 at 8 am
- when you get your unconditional firm offer after 13 August 2020
whichever is the latest of the two.
Adjustment closes on Monday 31 August 2020.
If your offer is confirmed less than 5 days before 31 August, you'll only have whatever time is left between then and 31 August to apply.
Who can apply through Adjustment
UK, EU and international students can use Adjustment.
You can apply for Adjustment if you have exceeded the terms of your original offer.
It does not matter if you have applied to us before or not. If you meet the criteria and we have spaces, we will consider you.
If you have got a place with us and you want to change to a different course with us, you don't need to use the Adjustment process; you can use our Course Change process.
Join our live chat session on Monday 3 August from 4 pm to 5 pm (BST) to get all your Clearing and Adjustment questions answered.
Register your interest
If you are waiting for your A-levels, you can sign up to receive information and guidance about the Clearing process.
We'll email you before A-level results day with guidance and will also email on results day with our vacancy listings.
