Clearing pairs applicants with available university places. There are a variety of reasons places are still vacant, for example, it’s an opportunity for those who have had a last-minute change of heart about the university they want to attend or course they want to study.
Clearing runs from 5 July to mid-September. If you meet any of the following criteria, you are eligible for the process:
- You apply after 30 June
- You are not holding any offers from universities or colleges you’ve applied to
- Your place is not confirmed after exam results are published.
- You've changed your mind about your chosen university and 'self-release' into Clearing
