Clearing is the process by which prospective students, who currently don’t hold any offers, can find university courses with available places.
Clearing is run by UCAS in tandem with universities and colleges that still have places available on certain courses.
If you are eligible to apply for courses through UCAS Clearing, you will receive a message on your UCAS Track account which states ‘you are in Clearing’ or ‘Clearing has started’.
Clearing is the final opportunity for applicants not holding a place to be considered by providers who have places available.
UCAS Clearing opens from July until September each year. More information about the Clearing process can be found on the UCAS website.
