So what is UCAS Clearing?

Simply put, Clearing is how universities and colleges fill any places they still have on their courses.

Who can use UCAS Clearing?

Perhaps you have declined the offers you have received or maybe you didn’t get the grades you were expecting. Either way, Clearing is for students who haven’t yet been offered a university place for the 2016/17 academic year. You can use Clearing if you…

  • Apply after 30th June
  • Didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • Didn’t meet the conditions of your offers

But how does UCAS Clearing work?

If you’re applying after 30th June, you’ll still need to register through UCAS and complete your application as normal (including your personal statement) but you can’t add course choices. You’ll be automatically entered into the Clearing process and will receive your Clearing Number via UCAS Track. It’s important to remember that, while you can search for available courses on the UCAS website, you can’t apply for a course through UCAS. Instead, you’ll have to contact each university directly.
