Unfortunately, The University of Manchester confirmed that they will not have any Clearing vacancies for 2021 entry due to high volume of applications from both Home and International students. This clearly shows that the growing popularity of The University of Manchester. 

We understand that this will cause considerable disappointment for some applicants. However, please remember that there are other options for you to browse. If you’d like to know the list of universities which you can apply for Clearing, please get in touch with us. 

<University of Cardiff>

University of Cardiff acknowledge that a lot of students wish to continue their studies remotely and delay their arrival on campus due to the uncertainty caused by the ongoing pandemic. 

However, you must ensure that you are in the UK before the ‘latest arrival date’ specified in your CAS letter. For courses starting on 27 September, the latest date you will be allowed to commence your studies on campus is 25 October, regardless of when the remote study request is made.

Any required quarantine should also be completed by this date.

Applying for a remote start:

  • Complete Online Enrollment on their official website (opens 3 weeks before course start date)
  • Request a remote start in SIMS
  • Requests should ideally be made before the start of the programme, to avoid missing out on online study materials
  • The last date to make remote study requests will be 11 October 2021.

This is what we've prepared for this week. We truly hope this helps and you find the right university that you'll be happy with. Then see you until we come back with other university news next week!
