Every year, thousands of students find their ideal course through Clearing.
What is Clearing?

Clearing is how unis and colleges fill places they still have on courses.

You can use Clearing (from 5 July – 21 October 2024) if:

  • you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college.
  • the course you wish to apply for still has places.
  • you didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept).
  • you didn’t meet the conditions of your offers.
  • you’ve declined your firm place using in your application.
