Frequently Asked Questions

  • Clearing is a period where universities fill the places they still have available on their undergraduate courses. It's also a way for you to find a place if you haven't been accepted by your firm or insurance choice universities.

    Clearing opens on the 5 July 2022. You can get in touch with us at any time to discuss your options and to find out how we can support you through the process. Clearing officially ends on the 18 October 2022.

  • You can apply through Clearing via UCAS if you:

    • Applied after 30 June
    • Didn't receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
    • Have declined your firm place, and so are not holding any offers

    Students wishing to enrol onto our part-time or postgraduate courses do not need to apply through UCAS and should apply directly through our website or get in touch with our admissions team.

  • If you applied to us after the 30 June 2022 (the last standard UCAS application date) then you will automatically be applying through Clearing.

    If you applied to us before the 30 June but have not received any offers, then your UCAS Track account will tell you if you are eligible.

  • Courses in Clearing are clearly marked on our website. Take a look at our course list.

  • Search our website to find out if your course is in Clearing and then give us a call to discuss your personalised Clearing offer. You can use our tariff point calculator to help you work out your grades.

  • Remain positive and begin to gather a list of universities that offer the course you’d like to study. Most universities will have a specific Clearing hotline number you can call nearer the time, ours is 02476 888 888. Read more about our top tips on how to prepare for clearing.

  • Unfortunately, due to data protection purposes, we cannot discuss general information with someone other than you as the applicant.

    The exception to this is if you have a nominated person included on your UCAS application and they contact us on your behalf. If you think you’ll need to speak to us about a Clearing place, we advise that you are available to contact us so that we can help you find a suitable course.

  • Coventry University and CU Coventry provides guaranteed accommodation for students accepted through Clearing. Visit our accommodation page for details on what’s available and how we can support you.

  • If this is your first time applying to university you will need to apply for finance through the Student Finance England website. The initial deadline may have passed but your application will still be processed.

    If you have already applied but have changed university you will need to contact Student Finance England to update your application as soon as you have confirmed your choice.

  • After you receive a Clearing offer to study at Coventry, you will receive an email with what steps you’ll need to take next, which will include any deadlines.

    Take a look at our settling in page to prepare for what's to come.

  • You can decide to turn down your original offer and choose us in Clearing instead. You can do this through a process known as ‘self-release’. Simply sign into UCAS Track, click ‘Decline my place’ on the homepage and follow the instructions.
