How Clearing works

Clearing made easy

Clearing is now open! If you already have your results or are not currently holding an offer you can apply now. If you have a university place and want to change your mind you can do that too!

If you are considering going through Clearing or want to keep your options open, here’s some helpful information for you and your parents on how to find a course, and what to do when you’ve found one.

The Clearing process, which is operated by UCAS, is designed to help people find a university course that still has places available.
