Clearing creates opportunities to find your perfect course. If you have not yet secured a place and you want to study music or entertainment and kick-start your career this year, LCCM is here to help make that happen.

The Clearing period can be hectic, but we’re here to help make things as smooth as possible. Finding the right institute and the right music course to study should be an exciting moment in your life and will be one of the most important decisions you will have to make. That is why at LCCM we are here to help you all the way, so you can start your lasting career in the music or the entertainment industries.

It’s a mistake to think clearing only occurs in the week following results day. Nope! Clearing starts in July and ends in September. From 5 July, you can find a list of Clearing and Adjustment vacancies on the LCCM website. This gives you plenty of time to prepare and plan.

To help you find the perfect music degree to study this year, we have put together some useful resources and information that you can use to plan and stay organised through the Clearing period. So, let’s get started…

You should consider the Clearing route if you:

  • are applying after 30 June
  • have changed your mind on where and/ or what you would like to study
  • have decided that you want to study this year and haven’t already applied
  • did not achieve the results you expected (no need to worry, we’re here to help)

The next step - Applying through Clearing

From 5 July you can see which of our courses are in Clearing by looking at our website and also on the UCAS website. If you are in Clearing, your status in ‘UCAS Track’ will reflect this.

Once you have decided which course you are interested in, you should get in touch with us to discuss your options and receive a provisional offer. Remember to have your UCAS Personal ID number and your exam results on hand before you call.

Here are some tips on Clearing:

  • LCCM course places may become limited and as this is a busy period, so please make sure to apply as soon as you can.
  • When you are applying through Clearing, to make the process as smooth as possible, please be well prepared and have all the relevant information at hand.
  • Check out the Clearing pages on our website, so that you have all the necessary, recent, and updated information.
