So how does clearing work?

If you haven’t yet made an application or haven’t been accepted on to your first choice university course, there is still opportunity for you to study at the next level.

In line with UCAS Clearing advice, you can apply through Clearing if you:

  • Haven’t got your firm or insurance choice of course
  • Didn’t receive any offers when you first applied or didn’t apply in the first round
  • Have changed your mind on where you wish to study or what course
  • Have ended up with different grades to what you expected so must/or want to change courses
