What is Clearing?

Clearing matches applicants to university places that are yet to be filled.

You’ll be eligible for Clearing in 2019 if you:

  • haven’t met the conditions of your offer from universities or colleges you’ve applied to;
  • didn’t receive any offers (or none that you wish to accept);
  • have applied after 30 June 2019.

Key dates

From 5 July to 23 October, you can apply for a course using Clearing if you're not already holding an offer from a university or college, and the course still has places.

  • Early July - our Clearing courses are published
  • Friday 5 July - Clearing opens for those who hold no offers
  • Thursday 15 August - A-level results day - if you had conditional offers but your exam results didn't go to plan, or you'd like to explore other options, you can use Clearing from results day
  • Friday 16 and Monday 19 August - Our Clearing Open Days take place, giving you the opportunity to visit our campuses and speak to our staff

For further information on Clearing, please visit the UCAS website.

Reasons to study with us

“I was scared when I didn’t get my original choice as I had no idea about Clearing, but the staff at UWE Bristol really helped me through the application process. UWE Bristol is a great university. I loved the lectures, the practicals and the labs and I also enjoyed student life there. Bristol is also one of the best cities to live in.”
