What is UCAS Clearing?

Posted on Jul 01, 2016

UCAS Clearing is a way for universities to fill any spaces they have left for the new academic year and it allows you, students who do not hold an offer, another chance of finding a university place. It operates between July and September. You are only eligible if you have already applied through UCAS, and one of these situations is true for you:

• You have not received any offers.
• You have declined all your offers or not responded by the due date.
• Your offers have not been confirmed because you have not met the conditions
• You have declined a changed course, a changed date of entry and/or changed point of entry offer
• UCAS receives your application after 30th June 2016.

Your eligibility for Clearing will show up on your Track page, where you will find your Clearing Number (universities will need this so that they can access your application) and the ‘Add a Clearing Choice’ button.

The first step in the Clearing process is contacting the university(s) by phone or email – not applying. You can contact as many universities as you like to discuss the course, eligibility and consideration, and may receive offers from several. Don’t feel that you have to accept the first offer that you receive: make sure that the university or college and course are right for you before you accept a place.

You can only enter one choice, and you must have discussed your application with the university first. Once you’ve found a place(s) that you think are suitable, the first thing you should do is phone the university(s) and discuss it with them – remember, you shouldn’t apply for a place unless a university actually asks you to.
