The Brighton Film School Guide to Clearing

At Brighton Film School, you’ll experience opportunities unlike anywhere else. But we also understand that weighing up your university options involves other factors, such as:

  • Where you’ll be based
  • Meeting new people
  • Budgeting your money
  • Finding student accommodation

And we realise that these kinds of decisions can play on your mind (and maybe even cause some butterflies). That’s why over these summer months we’re putting together our top tips and tricks to make starting this chapter as stress-free and seamless as possible… Keep an eye out for these on our social media channels and website!

Getting Ready For Film School: The Fresher’s Guide

We want to make sure you’re not only clearing ready, but you’re ready for a filmmaking life in September, too. In the meantime, here is how clearing works:

 

What is clearing?

Clearing is how unis and colleges fill any places they still have on their courses. For us, that means publicising a list of BFS courses which still have vacancies, and for you it’s an ideal way to find another course if you aren’t totally satisfied with the current options you have in front of you.

 

How long does clearing last?

This year, Brighton Film School’s Clearing will be available from Friday 5th July until Monday 23rd September 2019 (spaces depending). If you already have your exam results, but no offers, you can use Clearing from July. If you’ve had conditional offers, but your exam results didn’t quite go according to plan, you can use Clearing on A Level results day through the UCAS website.

What happens next?

Unconditional offers? How to use Clearing

Only unconditional offers can be made through Clearing. For BFS, this means we have to confirm that you’ve met any necessary academic requirements and have a portfolio of work to showcase before we’ll offer you a place.

No offers? How to use Clearing

If you’ve already received your exam results, but haven’t had any offers to date, you can use Clearing from July. Here are the steps you must follow:

4. Submit UCAS application. We will then check your academic qualifications
5. Send portfolio work electronically if required
6. BFS unconditional place offered
7. Your place is instantly confirmed

Conditional offers? How to use Clearing

If you’ve had conditional offers, but your exam results aren’t quite as expected, you can use Clearing on A Levels results day (Thursday 15th August). Keep an eye on your UCAS Track and if you become eligible to use Clearing, an ‘Add a Clearing choice’ button will become available in the ‘Your Choices’ section from 3pm. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

1. Obtain Clearing Number
2. Single choice applicants must top-up their fee to UCAS to £24 (an additional £11)
3. Call BFS on 01273 602070 or 07809418757 to provide your Clearing and ID Numbers and to check on places available
