What is UCAS Clearing?
UCAS Clearing is the process by which universities and 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, because they’ve changed their plans or they have only recently decided to apply to university.
How does UCAS Clearing work?
If you’re applying through UCAS Clearing, you’ll still need to register and make an application through UCAS as normal. If you're not holding any offers from other universities, UCAS will provide you with a Clearing Number, which enables you to apply for courses in Clearing. If you apply for university through UCAS after 30 June then you will automatically be entered into Clearing. Visit the
UCAS website to find out more about how Clearing works.

Lizzy found herself in Clearing when she hadn’t achieved the grades she needed to study at her first choice university. She discovered skeleton in her first year at the University of Gloucestershire and was supported by staff and lecturers to balance her studies with competing and training. She is now the most decorated British Winter Olympian ever.
“My advice would be don’t panic. There is time to find the right university. Compile a shortlist of what key things you would like from your course and university, call around and see what fits best, then go for it!”

Geography and Sport and Exercise science graduate, Olympic Winter Games Skeleton Gold Medallist 2014/2018
