Find out all you need to know about what Clearing is, when it starts, and how to prepare and apply.
What is clearing?
You may not have achieved the grades you hoped for, changed your mind about the course or university you've already applied to or decided to go to university at the last minute. Either way, Clearing offers you a chance to find a full-time undergraduate course starting in September.
How to prepare for Clearing
You need to make sure that the course you pick is something you’ll enjoy doing for three or more years, and that it could lead to a career that you’ll find fulfilling! So, whether you’re looking at courses for the first time or if you’ve had a change of heart, it’s important to do your research.
Your course is important, but it’s just as important to study at an institution where you feel supported and encouraged in your studies. Don't rush into applying to any university that has spaces available, instead, think about where you can see yourself studying.
Make sure you have the phone numbers of the universities you want to call, their opening times and the names of the courses you want to apply, so you're all good to go. Plus, make sure you know when and where you can collect your results on the day.
