What is Clearing?

Clearing is a UCAS service that helps applicants if they’re not accepted on a course, they’ve declined all offers or if they’ve applied after 30 June. Clearing runs from mid-July to September each year. If your first and insurance higher education choice turns you down you’ll be eligible to apply to a course through clearing.
