Learn all you need to know about clearing at UCEN Manchester.

What is clearing and how does it work? If you need to get clued up on clearing, then we’ve got all the answers to your questions. We've got all the answers to your questions on clearing in our helpful guide.

What is clearing?

Clearing is how universities fill any places they still have on their courses. Clearing is a good option for you if you’ve decided to change course or didn't achieve the results needed for your firm and insurance choice on UCAS. You can also apply direct to clearing if you’ve not applied to any degree courses yet.

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 2020 entry.

The clearing process is really straightforward. Simply figure out what course you would be interested in doing and call our dedicated clearing hotline 0161 674 7777 to discuss it further with someone from our team. 

You’ll be given instructions for next steps once you have confirmed your interest in the course. You can check out our How to Apply through Clearing guide to help you get a better idea of what happens.
