Information about the Clearing process

What is Clearing?

If your results are not quite as good as you would have hoped, or if you have only just decided to apply for higher education, Clearing offers you the chance to gain a place at university.

Clearing is a well established process that works for thousands of students each year. The clearing vacancies for all institutions are published on the UCAS website on A-level/AVCE results day (Thursday 17 August 2017).

If you have not yet applied to study at university you can also use the clearing process to apply for a course.Places fill up fast so it's important that you secure a place as soon as possible. To find out if the University of Bolton can offer you a place on one of our courses please call 01204 903030.

If you’ve already made an application through UCAS this year you’ll need to continue with that application. We’ve put together some information just for you, outlining what you need to do and what to expect from us in the next few days and weeks.

If you are eligible for clearing and are not holding any offers, please give the Clearing team a call on 01204 903030 before referring your application through UCAS track.

You can still apply to study a course in September 2017 even if you haven’t made any application to do so this year.
