1. Unifrog Clearing Tool

At St Brendan's, we have exclusive access to the Unifrog clearing tool for all Year 13 students. This tool will be refreshed every 24 hours with available courses and should help any students needing to go through the clearing process.

To login to Unifrog, use your student email address.

Remember you can continue to use Unifrog after you leave by just changing your email on the settings cog on the top left of the home page.

3. Deferring

Can I defer my place after I get my exam results/after my place is confirmed?

  • If you are due to start your course in September and decide you want to defer your place for a year, you must contact the university directly.
  • Some course providers may not allow deferral for some courses at this point in the application cycle.
  • You will be asked to give reasons for your late decision to defer.
  • Your request will be considered, but there is no guarantee that it will be accepted, and you may be asked to reapply.
  • Once you have deferred your place at this point, you will not be able to revert to your original year of entry.
