What is clearing?
Clearing is a UCAS service that allows universities to fill spaces on courses that aren't yet full, while students without offers are given a second chance to pursue their higher education aspirations.
When does clearing open?
The service is available from July to September each year meaning you can enter Clearing from A-level results day onwards.
Vacancies are updated regularly, with the majority added from results day. You can phone the university hotline numbers from Thursday morning to late afternoon on this day. As opening times will vary, it's best to check with the individual university for details.
