If you haven’t secured your place at university in September, if you’ve changed your mind about a course you have already applied for, or if you have not received the results you were expecting, Clearing and Adjustment is your opportunity to find the right course for you.
The Royal Veterinary College has availability on a range of biosciences courses that cover pathology, wild animal biology, bioveterinary science, research, and animal behaviour, welfare and ethics. If you can’t choose which one you would like to study, we encourage you to call us on our Clearing hotline to find out more.
We look forward to welcoming you as a student to the RVC. Our commitment to your safety means that from September 2020 our biosciences courses will be delivered via our newly redesigned online learning platform LEARN. We then look forward to welcoming you on campus in January 2021.
Our Autumn term modules have been planned to allow you to take a flexible, self-paced approach to your studies. You will still have regular contact with your lecturers and tutors via timetabled online seminar style classes throughout the week.
Additionally, you will be part of a small tutor group and will have group-based activities to complete, that have been designed to complement your individual learning and to develop your transferable skills. In January, when you are able to join us on campus, you will begin to develop your practical and laboratory skills, alongside continuing with our blended approach, incorporating self-paced study and regular live sessions both on and off campus throughout each week of study.
Please note that we do not have any places available through Clearing and Adjustment for veterinary medicine and veterinary nursing courses.

Didn’t do as well as expected?
Don’t worry, we still have places available on our biosciences courses. Many students don't quite achieve the grades they were hoping for each year, but we try our best to find a place for you through Clearing at the RVC.
Changed your mind?
It can seem like a long time ago that you applied for university, and since then you may have changed your mind. We don't want you to study something you don't want to, but if you are serious about science you can secure a place through Clearing.
Did better than expected?
Adjustment opens from 13th - 31st August. If you have exceeded the offer conditions for your 'Firm' place, you can use Adjustment to reconsider your options and apply to study at another university or on another course. Call us to find out more
Haven't applied yet?
It is not too late to apply and start this September! If you did not think university was for you previously, or if you have taken time out from education, but now would love to come and study at the RVC, you can apply through Clearing for a place.
