NMITE's Clearing Process - all you need to know!

I would like to apply for a place on the MEng starting in September 2021 - what happens next?

Whether you apply directly to us, or via UCAS Clearing, we will arrange a convenient time for us to speak with you.

This will take no longer than 30 minutes and will also give you the opportunity to ask a member of our Team any questions you may have - about the Clearing process and/or NMITE and our exciting new MEng Integrated Engineering programme in general!

During our conversation, we will be asking you to talk to us about the following two questions, so you have the opportunity to demonstrate some of the attributes we are looking for, rather than us just looking at qualifications and exam results alone. 

  • "Think of a time when you were involved in achieving something exciting; it could be a project, a hobby, a shared experience, a positive life event . What is it that inspired you, what part of it did you make happen, and how does a fired-up you think & behave?"
  • "Give an example of you in a teamworking environment that proved a bit of a challenge.  What role or approaches you took and how you worked with the team to reach your aims?" 

To help you further, the following terminology guide is provided to aid your thinking about the questions:







  Ability to tackle adversity  Demonstrates independent learning  Vision of engineering’s impact on society  Imaginative thinking  Team player 
Definition The ability to be happy, successful, etc. again after something difficult or bad has happened.  An eager wish to know or learn about something.  An extreme interest in or wish for doing something, such as a hobby, activity, etc.  Good at thinking of new ideas or using imagination to create new and unusual things.  The situation of two or more people working together to create or achieve the same thing. 


Evidence of challenges faced, and approaches taken to overcome them.  Enthusiastic about engineering and/or education with a high level of independent learning.  Passionate perception of the potential impact of engineering with diverse examples and evidence.  Evidence of creative thinking through exploration.  Experience of group work including contributions made by self and others. 

Overall purpose: Clear understanding of the unique NMITE opportunity and a desire to be part of the experience.
