What is clearing?

Clearing is the process whereby students without an offer can search and apply for undergraduate courses at Universities. The service is provided by UCAS and runs between July and September each year.

Who can use clearing?

You can use clearing if you aren't holding any offers to study at a University or College despite applying through UCAS.
You're eligible for clearing if:

  • You haven't received any offers
  • You declined the offers you received
  • You didn't meet the conditions of the offer
  • Your application was completed after 30 June

If you've met the criteria above, UCAS will automatically place you into clearing. However, you can still be entered into clearing if you have an offer.
To do this you will need to release yourself into clearing through UCAS Track.
