    Hi Guys,

    Apologies in advance if this question has a blazingly obvious answer!

    Just as title really - I've been out of education since 2009 - and have since put my uni career on hold to have my daughter, then waiting until my partner graduated.

    I was planning on re applying next year, but have seen a course available through clearing that I would LOVE to apply for.

    Would I have to apply through UCAS to be entered into clearing, or can I just call the university clearing line and apply that way?

    Any help/advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    To my knowledge, clearing is only available to those who have made an application for that application cycle, and even then are circumstances you have to be in, like no offers, exceeded offers etc. So in short, no you can't.

    I may be wrong, you can still contact the university if you like, even if they say no, you can use it as an opportunity to gather some info about the course, as well other stuff.

    Thank you for your reply

    I was wondering if I filled out my application for UCAS now - would I automatically be entered into clearing. I suppose it would be worth a shot in the off chance.

    Yeah you can still apply for this application cycle, it's worth a shot. To answer your question, yes you will be entered into clearing as you will hold no offers.

    Good luck

    I work in clearing for a London university and the answer to your question is you must have a UCAS application to have a clearing number! If you don't we advise people to sign up online and make a UCAS application. Do not worry about people receiving a level results. UCAS Is always open however if you are intrested to join a uni now then you have upto the 20th to do so.
