Clearing 2022 – There is still time to apply

Why study with us?

Studying a degree at University Centre Peterborough will mean that you can benefit from smaller class sizes and plenty of individual support from your lecturers.

As the majority of courses are studied as two full days a week plus there are part-time study options, you can really fit studying a degree around family, work or personal commitments.

Students who study in Peterborough can also be financially better off as we have lower tuition fees compared to other universities, you can apply for a maintenance loan of up to £9,488 per year and there are cash bursaries worth up to £1,500.

We are proud to hold our graduation ceremony at Peterborough Cathedral, which is one of the most stunning and historic venues in the UK. The video below is of our last ceremony with 900 students, guests and staff.

Attend our Clearing Information Event on Friday 16th September 2022 or Wednesday 21st September 2022!


What is Clearing?

You can apply to University Centre Peterborough through Clearing if you've not yet applied, don't have a place confirmed or you've changed your mind about the course or where you want to study.

Clearing starts on 5th July 2022 so you can apply to us before you get your results, so there is no need to wait. You are advised to apply as early as possible to secure a place on the course, arrange your student finances and relax knowing your place is confirmed.
