The Ultimate Clearing Guide – What, Where And When To Apply

If you don’t have a university place, don’t panic! With Clearing, you could be able to snap up a place that has not yet been filled. Read on for our UCAS Clearing 2021 guide.

What Is UCAS Clearing?

UCAS Clearing is how universities fill any places they still have available on their courses. So, if you’re not enrolled on a university course yet or you have changed your mind, Clearing could enable you to locate a course that still has space so you can make an application.

You will need to apply via UCAS if you have already made an application on the platform for this current academic year and you wish to take a full-time undergraduate course. But don’t panic, as we will take you through the process so that you know exactly what to do.

Who Can Use UCAS Clearing? When Can I Make My Clearing Application?

- You can use UCAS Clearing if the following applies to you:

- You are applying after the 30th of June

- You did not get any offers that you wanted to accept

- You did not meet the conditions of the offers you received

- You have used the ‘decline my place’ button to decline your place

- You have paid the £25 multiple choice application fee

How to Apply Using Clearing

Here are the steps to follow if you would like to apply for a university place via Clearing:

1. Don’t be afraid to start off by asking for advice - We have a friendly and knowledgeable Clearing team here at the University of Bolton. We’d be more than happy to answer your questions.

2. Find out what courses are available - UCAS have a search function that enables you to find out what vacancies are available. There is no other official vacancy list, so you can be sure it is the most up-to-date.

3. Speak with any universities you’re interested in - You can find your Clearing number in Track, which you will need before you call any university. Make sure you have your Personal ID as well. Find out whether they would be willing to accept you and get an informal offer over the phone.

4. Add your Clearing choice in Track - Once you have permission from the university, you can click on ‘add Clearing choice’ to add this to your Track. This counts as an acceptance, and you can only add one at a time. However, if the university does not confirm your place, you can add another.
