Students from Scotland

Scottish Confirmation & Clearing

We recognise that the circumstances of the last year have been extremely challenging for school pupils in the senior phase and we want to reaffirm our support for our applicants who are awaiting confirmation of their place for entry into Strathclyde courses during academic year 2021/22.

This year, verified grades will be confirmed by UCAS on 10 August. Whilst we understand that some applicants may receive provisional grades prior to this date, we cannot confirm offers or otherwise act on unofficial grade information before 10 August

We recognise this may feel like a long wait, but we are committed to ensuring fairness to all Strathclyde applicants.

We understand that this interim period may be worrying for any applicant who believes they may have missed the requirements of their conditional undergraduate offer. We do not recommend that you take any further action, such as withdrawing your application, because you may still be eligible for a place.

Once results are confirmed on 10 August, we will be reconsidering applicants who have not met conditions for any places that may be available. If this applies to you, we will notify you through UCAS Track as to the outcome of any reconsideration. Thank you for your patience while we complete this process.

Whilst we can’t confirm offers until results day on 10 August, we are still available to give general information, advice and guidance to any applicant, as well as to those learners who are planning to apply to university in the future.

SQA Appeals

We know that some pupils will be appealing their grade(s) and may be holding a conditional offer for a place that depends on the outcome of the appeal. Candidates can register for an appeal from 25 June and should do so by 12 August to get a priority appeal, which SQA will process by 8 September, in time to meet the relevant UCAS advisory deadline. We will do our utmost to hold places for applicants making a priority appeal. Where we are not able to do so, and conditions are met through appeal, we will offer deferred entry to September 2022.

Applicants are advised to inform us of an appeal as soon as they decide to submit, and to get further advice on their options.

Please contact our UK student recruitment team if you require any advice and guidance ugenquiries@strath.ac.uk

The University of Strathclyde participates in the UCAS Adjustment process. Adjustment dates for 2021 will be confirmed later in the year. If you have exceeded your offer conditions from another university and would like to apply to the University of Strathclyde please contact us directly to discuss.
