Digital Institute London is part of Staffordshire University, an award-winning institution renowned for industry pioneering courses.
Staffordshire University has led the way in the computing sector for over 50 years, and recently offered Europe’s first esports degree. Forward-thinking is second nature for the University, and expanding Digital Institute London means better networking, bigger games design companies, and an international stage for esports tournaments.
Digital Institute London is located in East London, in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, and is housed in the impressive Here East technology complex.
Here East is based in what has quickly become one of the best-connected places in London. With new rail and tube links in place, St Pancras International is now less than seven minutes away. London’s other major rail terminals can be reached in 20 minutes, Heathrow in an hour and London City Airport in a mere 13 minutes. In the near future, Crossrail, High Speed 2, and direct international links to mainland Europe will ensure even quicker and easier travel, wherever you’re going or arriving from.

Clearing helps those who have received their qualifications but don’t have a confirmed place at University to find one.
UCAS will tell you if you’re eligible to find a place in Clearing on your UCAS Track account.
You can check our clearing offer calculator which contains all our available courses, or you can call our Clearing Hub on 0800 590 830.
All our courses have entry requirements. We look at the grades you have achieved from traditional academic qualifications as well as any relevant work experience or life experience. We look at the whole application to make a decision.
Yes! The best thing to do is to give our Clearing Hub a call on 0800 590 830 and we will have a chat with you about the next steps to get your application started.
If you’re holding an offer at another institution but want to find out if we can make you an offer, call our Clearing Hub on 0800 590 830. Once you have received a verbal offer you will be able to ‘self-release’ from your firm institution on UCAS Track and add us to your application.
When you call our Clearing Hub, have your UCAS ID number to hand if you have one. Our Clearing Advisers will ask you for some information about who you are, what qualifications you have and what you are interested in studying. You may be transferred to talk to an academic but don’t worry – this is an opportunity to discuss why you are interested in the course and what your career ambitions and goals are.
You will receive an email from us confirming your verbal offer. You will be asked to refer yourself to us on UCAS – which just means adding us to your application. Once we receive that application, our Admissions team will process your offer and send you a formal offer letter.
If you have already applied for Student Finance it is really easy to change your details, including the University you are going to study at. Log into your account and select ‘change your application’ and select the university/college course option. This change will be reviewed and they will let you know if that has been approved.
If you haven’t applied for student finance yet and you have a confirmed place with us through Clearing, it’s best to start that application as soon as you can. It can take up to 6 weeks to be processed.
Clearing applicants can find information on our Student Support page.
Going to University is one of the biggest decisions we ever make. Using clearing can often be stressful so we have put together some advice for those who are supporting people who are using clearing to find a place at University:
– If the applicant’s exam results are lower than expected, you can signpost them to support from their school/college. There is also a wealth of online support from UCAS, the National Careers Service and The Student Room.
– It can be easy for applicants to rush into a decision so it’s important that they try not to panic. It’s OK to take a little time to think about what they want to do next.
– Before the applicant calls us to discuss applying through Clearing, help them get organised. Make sure that they have their results to hand and their UCAS ID number if they have one.
– They will speak to a member of our Clearing Hub first and may speak to an academic. We understand they might be anxious so we will take our time to really understand what the applicant wants to do.
You can contact us by filling out our enquiries form, where our specialist clearing team will be able to guide you through the application process.
