Thinking about Clearing? 

Clearing can be a pretty scary time for everyone. Maybe you've already received your results and aren't sure what to do next, or you're thinking about going through Clearing but aren't sure how it all works?

Join us on our Colchester Campus for a Pre-Clearing Taster. You'll get the chance to hear talks about what Clearing means, and the process once you've received your results. There will also be campus and accommodation tours, so you can get to know what life at Essex is really like.

Please note, there won't be any academics available on the day. If you have any specific course related questions, get in touch with admit@essex.ac.uk.
