What are Clearing courses​​?

Clearing courses are the undergraduate courses that are accepting Clearing applications. Not all of the undergraduate courses we offer are open during Clearing, so it’s important to check that the course you want to apply for is still accepting applications.

The UCAS Clearing courses list will show the courses that have places and are available for you to apply for once you have your exam results. For many students, applying for Clearing courses is a great way to secure a university place, perhaps because you may not have the grades you were hoping for or have only just decided to apply to university.

When are Clearing courses available to apply to?

The clearing process opens in July 2024, but you can only apply through Clearing when you have all your exam results. Clearing officially closes in October, however our most popular courses may fill up before this.

If you are studying A levels in 2024, you will not be able to apply for any Clearing courses until 15 August. If you’re ready to apply for university before Clearing opens, you may be able to submit a late application for your chosen course, or apply through UCAS Extra.
