What is Clearing?
Clearing is a way of matching universities which have places available with students that have achieved the required grades for the course you’re applying for.
If you didn’t receive an offer from any of the five universities you applied to, or find on results day that you didn’t get the grades you needed for your course, UCAS Clearing is your second chance of getting a place at University on a similar course.
For many students, Clearing only becomes available once you’ve received your A-Level results and you know whether you’ve met the entry criteria for your chosen course.
Results days for 2017 can be found below:
- International Baccalaureate: Wednesday 5 July 2017
- BTEC and other vocational courses: During July – check with your school/college
- Scottish Highers: Tuesday 8 August 2017
- A levels: Thursday 17 August 2017
Clearing is also available for students who already have their results and are not holding an offer at a UK University – if you apply to enroll at University for 2017 you are automatically entered into Clearing after 30 June.
Top Clearing tips
Here's some of our top tips for Clearing:
1. Be available - don't go on holiday and make sure you’re checking your emails and phone (universities are unlikely to be able to offer a place without speaking to you first).
2. Keep checking your UCAS account - if you become eligible for Clearing the 'Add Clearing choice' option will become available.
3. Check the UCAS website and/or University websites for official listings of vacancies in your chosen subject.
4. Most importantly, keep trying! Some vacancies won’t feature in the official listings. They usually go within hours, so ring ASAP if there's somewhere you really want to go.
5. Always remember to keep calm, with so many decisions to make you’ll need a clear head!
Visiting your University
Many universities will run Clearing open days to offer applicants (and their parents) an opportunity to visit, view the facilities and talk to staff and other fellow students.
Even if there is not an official opportunity to visit your University, if you’re going through Clearing it’s well advised to contact the University to take a tour before making a commitment. As long as there is enough time between receiving an offer and making the visit most universities will generally keep the offer open for you, but of course it’s best to double check!
