What is Clearing?

Clearing is the period in which UCAS works together with universities to help fill any available places they may have. You are eligible to apply for a course through Clearing if you:

  • Gained the exact or better grades than required, but want to go to a different university
  • Didn't meet the conditions required
  • Weren't made any offers
  • Declined your offers
  • Submitted your UCAS application after 30 June 2022

Clearing also gives people who may not have thought about going to university the opportunity to apply.

I rang up the Clearing hotline and the people were really positive and friendly. They ended up offering me a place.
