Some people may be worried that they have missed the boat when it comes to their university application. However, applying through Clearing means that it’s not too late. You could still get a position for the coming year. Below, we explain everything you need to know.
What Is University Clearing?
Clearing is a term used to describe university applicants being matched to university places that are yet to be filled. You will be able to make the most of clearing if you have made an application to any university via the UCAS Undergraduate application process, but you don’t hold any offers.
You will be eligible for Clearing if any of the following applies to you:
- You have applied to UCAS after June 30th
- You have not got the exam results you required for your first or second-course choices
- Your place is not confirmed after exam results have been published on August 13th
- You have accepted an offer, but you have changed your mind regarding the course you want to do
Use University Clearing on Results Day
Applying through clearing can take place from 8 am on your results day. All you need to do is enter your personal ID number on your UCAS Track page. From there, you should see a message stating that you are in Clearing. In the top left-hand corner, there should be a Clearing number. Keep it handy, as you will need it when you contact us or any other university. You can then use the UCAS search tool feature to discover which courses still have places in your chosen subject. This is the most up-to-date search tool, showing the contact details and information for each possible space or course.
How to Generate Your Own Offer
You can generate your own Clearing offer on the University of Bolton website. Just click on this link. All you need to do is enter your qualifications and select a course that you are interested in. Once you have done this, our Clearing Offer Generator will tell you what you are eligible for. You can then either complete the application in full directly with us or you can go onto add the course as a clearing option with UCAS.
