Clearing: Your
Step-by-Step Guide

Follow our Clearing step-by-step to find out how you can get a place on one of our courses this September if you don't already hold a place.

Who can apply through Clearing?

Clearing provides students who haven’t met the conditions of their university offers, or might not be holding an offer, with vacancies on degree programmes.

You can apply through Clearing if you:

  • didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • didn’t meet the conditions of your offer
  • declined a firm place using the ‘decline my place’ button in UCAS Hub
  • applied after 30 June 2022

You can add a Clearing choice to your application in UCAS Hub if you already have an application, or you can apply to UCAS as a new applicant and add your choice. 

If you're an international student and have already received your results, we have a range of places available for high-achieving international students. We welcome applications from 01 July.

For students receiving their IB results, our International Baccalaureate Hotline is open from 09.00-17.00 from Tuesday 05 to Friday 08 July: 0191 222 5106.
