8 ways to survive Clearing

1. Check your UCAS Track account

Log on to your UCAS Track account to check whether your places has been confirmed. If so, congratulations! We’ll send out your enrolment and induction information very soon.

2. My places haven’t been confirmed 

Take a breath and don’t panic. OK, so your results may not have been what you were expecting, but that’s okay. You can still apply and be considered for a place through Clearing. It’s important at this stage not to get too downhearted – it’s not the end of the world by any means. You may still have the opportunity to go to university and we’ll help you all we can.

3. Research the courses you are interested in

If you are eligible to apply through Clearing, you can start looking for a course that you would like to study. Universities that offer courses through Clearing are usually advertised in newspapers and online. Our website is the best place to look for Clearing information and courses that have available places. If you cannot find the course you are interested in give us a call.

4. Clearing Open Days

Some universities hold open days specifically for applicants applying through Clearing. This is an opportunity for you to take a look around the university, view the facilities, speak to staff and talk more about the course you are interested in. 

5. Contact us

Once you have found a course that you would like to study, contact us to discuss your interest and to make sure that places are available. Call us on 03455 76 06 06, use live chat or DM us on social media.

6. Have your documents to hand

We will require evidence that you meet the entry criteria for the course you have chosen. Make sure that you have all these details to hand so that you can provide them as soon as they are asked for.

7. Ask questions

If you have any questions about the course, the university, student life, accommodation or studying, make sure to ask them. Write them down and have a copy to hand when speaking to the university to make sure that you don’t forget any.

8. Consideration of your application

If we are able to make you an offer, either on the course of your choice or a suitable alternative, we will send you a Clearing offer e-mail with further instructions on what to do next. If the course requires an interview or audition, you will be informed when this is likely to take place. 

If you are successful at interview/audition and we are able to make you an offer, we will send you a Clearing offer e-mail with further instructions on what to do next. 

If we are unable to offer a place on your first choice course, we’ll always consider you for the most suitable alternative, providing you meet the entry criteria. This may include HNDs, Foundation Degree, Certificates in Education and Foundation Year programmes.
