Welcome to SAE Clearing 2021
From 5 July to 30 September, higher education institutions and colleges will be offering places on courses that still have spaces. This process is called ‘Clearing’.
As soon as you have received your results and have your Clearing ID number you are ready to call SAE. Clearing can be a stressful time, but please don’t panic! We’ve made it easy for you and put all the information you need in one place.
We have limited vacancies across the following creative media disciplines:

What are the entry requirements to study at SAE?
ALTERNATIVE ENTRY ROUTES
We are interested in students who have the potential to succeed in their studies and in the creative media industries. As an alternative to traditional entry routes, or in support of your UCAS application, you may opt to submit a portfolio of your creative endeavours. This could include recordings, films, sketch books, a blog or any suitable medium that gives you the best opportunity to show us your creative potential.
Essay topics are chosen from one of the two listed below (word count between 1000-1200 words):
- Explain two significant changes in creative media that have taken place in the last two years.
- Choose a creative media artist and discuss why they are significant.
In your essay, you should refer to evidence and examples to support your arguments. Make sure you check your expression and grammar to ensure your work is clear and understandable.
We welcome applicants with relevant professional and vocational qualifications, or mature students (21+) who do not have formal qualifications but may have relevant experience in industry (APEL). We also welcome those thinking about thinking about transferring from another institution. Contact us at email@example.com so we can guide you through your application.
Information for BTEC and Access students
If you already have your BTEC or Access results and you are interested in studying on a course at SAE, you don't need to wait until August before starting to search for your place.
If your qualifications meet our requirements, we can make you a firm offer on the course of your choice (subject to availability and interview for certain courses).
Your BTEC results
If you haven't yet applied to us, you will need to obtain your results from your school or college before applying for a place.
If you have already applied, we will receive BTEC results directly from UCAS from June-September. If you already have your results, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org as this will speed up the process and allow you to firm up your plans to come to SAE in September.
Whether you have yet to apply or are already holding an offer at SAE, please scan and send your Access results through to email@example.com as soon as you receive them from your college.
If you are an Access or BTEC student with outstanding Level 2 or GCSE qualifications, please don't wait until you get these results to send existing qualifications through to us. Send us your Access or BTEC results as soon as you receive them.
