Undergraduate Degrees for 2020

Courses listed as "Available through Clearing" are subject to change and are not guaranteed to be available in Clearing

Welcome to the Clearing Blog Hub

Our blogs cover what to do on Results Day and real Clearing success stories. You can explore our essential Clearing guides - including our Clearing eBook - and student blogs.


Adjustment is a chance for you to reconsider where and what to study. If you've had a conditional firm choice accepted, you could potentially swap your place for another course you prefer.

Adjustment is available from A Level results day until the end of August. A lot of competitive courses will be full. But other applicants might have missed their conditions or swapped, so it could be worth seeing what degrees in Clearing and Adjustment are available.

Whether you get the grades you need or join us through Clearing or Adjustment, there are plenty of reasons to choose Newcastle University.
