Clearing 2022 is now open. Call our hotline on 0161 276 2118.

It’s not too late to make some noise. Apply through UCAS Clearing to join us this September.

There’s never been a better time to study your passion and join the music and audio industries. With access to a variety of studios, edit suites and our purpose-built live venue whenever suits you, you’ll have every opportunity to perfect your skills and become an industry trailblazer. You’ll arrive a student, and leave an expert.

Who can apply.

Clearing is your chance to apply for an undergraduate course after you’ve received your results, or if you didn’t apply through UCAS in the main scheme and are now considering higher education as an option.

In a nutshell, you can apply through Clearing if you:

  • Applied after 30 June
  • Didn’t receive any offers but you’re still looking to study in September
  • Declined the offers you received and are looking for another university or course more suitable for you
  • Didn’t get any offers when you first applied

How to apply.

To apply, you’ll need to do one of the following.

  1. If you’re already registered with UCAS, you can simply add one of our courses to your UCAS Track. You’ll know you’re eligible for Clearing if your application status says ‘You are in Clearing’ or ‘Clearing has started’. If you decline your firm place, your application status will automatically change to Clearing.
  2. If you are registering through UCAS for the first time, you’ll need to start an application to enable you to add one of our courses to your UCAS Track. UCAS will send you details of how to access your application as well as your Clearing number.

Things to remember.

As a partner campus for University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), you’ll find that our courses are listed as a UCLan course, but state that it’s to be delivered at Spirit Studios.  

To ensure you apply for the correct course at our campus, you’ll need the individual course code, institute code and our campus code which can all be found next to the course descriptions on our course pages.
