​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Clearing will run from July to September 2018, and we'll be publishing any courses​ that are accepting Clearing applications at the beginning of July.​

​​​​​​​What is Clearing?

Clearing is the process by which universities an​d colleges fill any places they still have on their courses. For many students it’s a great way to find a course, perhaps because they didn’t get the grades they were hoping for, they’ve changed their plans or they have only recently decided to apply to university.​

How does Clearing work?

If you’re applying through Clearing, you’ll still need to register and make an application through UCAS as normal, but you won’t be able to add any course choices. Applying through UCAS will provide you with a Clearing Number, which enables you to submit applications for courses which are accepting applications during Clearing. Visit the UCAS website​ to find out more about how Clearing works.​
