    Can anyone tell me how does clearing look like in UAL? I want to apply for Information and Interface Design, do you know what they will ask, when I call them? I'm a bit nervous, I finished my Art & Design BTEC 2 years ago, and I've been away from education since then. Will they ask me to send in portfiolio right away? Will they make me come all the way from Ireland to England for an interview? Also, you might not know an answer for it, but on their site it says "

    LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS (INTERNATIONAL/EU STUDENTS)

    All classes are conducted in English. If English is not your first language you will be asked to provide evidence of your English language ability when you enrol.
    • IELTS 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in each of the four skills."
    • Does that apply for me? I've being living in UK for the past 10 years. Thank you so much for any kind answers.

    Give them a call, it does seem you would have to do an interview despite going through clearing.

    When I applied normally I just sent them my portfolio via pebblepad ... no interview ... and got accepted but I wasn't going via clearing ... the BTEC you completed was it level 2 or 3 ... I've just finished level 2 ... perhaps also have a look at their FDA courses by the way they also do Skype interviews
