Clearing is a UCAS service which is available between July and October each year. It is an additional opportunity for applicants to apply for a university course if they haven't already been accepted on one.
There are many reasons why you might find yourself eligible to use Clearing:
Whatever your situation, Clearing is an opportunity for you to find the right course and the right university to suit you.
Our Clearing hotline will be open from Monday 4 July – Friday 30 September (where vacancies are available). Our trained operators are able to advise on course availability and will guide you through your options.
Places available through Clearing are often very popular, so call us as soon as you have your results.
Clearing officially opens this year on Friday 1 July. If you'd like to apply before Friday 1 July, you can do so via UCAS Extra.
We will publish our full list of available courses in Clearing on A-level results day on Thursday 18 August.
