By Kat Peberdy

We have a limited number of Clearing places available for September 2018...

Call our Admissions Team on +44 (0)1752 203400 for all Clearing enquiries.

We have a limited number of places through Clearing available for inspiring, inquisitive students to start in September 2018. If you're energetic and inquisitive, with a flair for art, craft, design or digital - then we want to hear from you.

We're interested in seeing your portfolio and hearing about your relevant experience. Although many of our students achieve top grades, we don't just look at your results - we want to see your passion, your creativity, and your work. Next Steps South West have provided this handy guide through clearing – read it now.

You can use Clearing if:

  • you haven’t already made an application
  • you didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • you didn’t meet the conditions of your offers

We're accepting Clearing applications through UCAS now - our Admissions Team can advise you on what we're looking for and talk you through your options. To talk to us and secure your place today call +44 (0)1752 203400 or email admissions@pca.ac.uk. Our staff are looking at applicant portfolios throughout the summer and we'd be happy to arrange a meeting with one of our Programme Leaders.

If you're contacting us about a Clearing application, there are a few things we'll need from you:

  • UCAS personal ID number, if you've already applied to us through UCAS.
  • Clearing number, which will be displayed in UCAS Track.

If your application is successful we’ll invite you to an interview, where you’ll get the chance to show us your portfolio of work.

Interviews are a great opportunity for us to find out a little more about you and for you to discover everything we have to offer. Take a look through our Portfolio and Interview Guide to get an idea of what we’re looking for, and what to expect from your interview.
