What is Clearing?
Clearing is the system that offers students who have not yet secured a place at university, the opportunity to apply for available places.
You can use Clearing if:
- You’ve completed a UCAS application;
- You don’t get any offers;
- Your offers aren’t confirmed;
- You’ve turned down all the offers you received;
You’ll automatically be entered into Clearing if you apply after 30 June.
Please visit the UCAS Clearing page for UCAS advice.
