What is Clearing?

Another way into university

Clearing happens every year and helps thousands of students find the university that's right for them for the upcoming September.

You might find it's the right fit for you if:

  • You didn't receive any offers, or you didn't accept any you did receive.
  • You are unsure you will meet the condition of your offer(s).
  • You did not get the grades you hoped for on Results Day and/or have not been accepted by your Firm or Insurance choices.
  • You've decided you would like to apply for a different course or university since you made your UCAS choices.
