When does Clearing end?

We will close for Clearing as soon as all our vacancies are filled.

How do I apply?

If you are eligible for Clearing you should automatically be informed by UCAS and be given a Clearing number. Although you can contact several universities and be offered a place at more than one through Clearing, you must only firmly accept one offer through UCAS Track.

If you are interested in applying for a Clearing place at Edinburgh Napier University there are three simple steps you need to follow:

  • Click on the link related to your Fee Statuson the left menu to see what places and courses are still accepting applications. 
  • If you are interested in one of our available courses, please call our Clearing Hotline on 0333 900 3050 or complete our Clearing enquiry form.
  • If you are calling our Clearing hotline, you must have full details of your qualifications and your Clearing Number to hand.

When will my studies begin at Edinburgh Napier University?

Our undergraduate degree courses start on Monday 5 September.

Why do you need to establish my fee status?

It is important that we identify which fee category you fall into, so we can advise on the relevant vacancies and the fees you will be charged for your studies.

Why do you have vacancies in Clearing for students living in England/Wales/NI but not those living in Scotland?

The Scottish Government provides each Scottish University with a fixed number of funded places (or targets) which it must meet each year. Universities must aim to meet this target and are subject to financial penalties if they exceed or fail to meet their 'funded target numbers'. There is therefore a Government limit on the number of funded places we have for Scottish/EU students.

Students from England, Northern Ireland and Wales are not funded by the Scottish Government and there are no targets or controls over the number of students we can accept. This is why, for many of our courses, we have places available to students from the Rest of the UK but no places left for Scottish or EU students.
