Clearing Courses

What is clearing? 

Clearing matches students with no offers to places on university courses that haven't been filled. 

It is a good option for undergraduate applicants that decide to change course after receiving their results or didn't achieve the conditions for their firm and insurance choice on UCAS. .You can also apply for clearing if you don’t receive any offers, or if you were holding an offer from a university, but did not meet their entry requirements on A-Level results day.

University clearing runs from July to October every year, enabling students to find a course that’s right for them. 

How does clearing work?

You can go through clearing if:

  • You have a UCAS undergraduate application with no offers
  • Your exam results have been published
  • You apply within the clearing dates for 2023 entry

The clearing process is incredibly straightforward. Simply figure out what course you would be interested in doing from the list above and call the dedicated clearing number to discuss it further with someone from UCEN Manchester. You will be given instructions for next steps once you have confirmed your interest in the course. Deciding which course to choose through clearing?
