Can I ask universities what time they will open their phone lines to students wishing to apply for a place via clearing/adjustment?

Also, are our students at a disadvantage by not being able to collect their results until 9 am when some schools seem t be opening their doors alot earlier?

At Sheffield Hallam, we open for Early Clearing (for applicants who already hold there results) from 9am from the 3rd July. We open for Clearing/Adjustment on the 17th August from 6:30am.

Whilst in the past our courses have remained available through Clearing/Adjustment after 9am, we cannot guarantee on course availability, especially for popular courses in areas such as Healthcare and Teaching Education.

Our Confirmation and Clearing Call Centre will be open from 8am to 5pm on Thurs 17 and Fri 18 August. It is unlikely a student will be disadvantaged by not receiving their results until 9am.

Don’t forget that students are able to check if they have a confirmed place using UCAS Track before 9am, and so would be free to check our vacancies online ( or by calling us from 8am if needed.
