Should I still call up universities if they don't have places available in clearing?

Sorry to hear that the Uni has no clearing spots, however I'd probably say it's not worth the call but continuously check their website and UCAS clearing page.
The may update is and some spots open up

For what course? In very rare cases some universities don't advertise some courses that are technically in clearing, because they have very few spaces and the course would generate a lot of interest. This is very, very uncommon but not unheard of and you have nothing to lose by calling. Don't be too hopeful, though.

Not sure about other unis, but anything which isn't listed on our website means it isn't in Clearing.

However, Clearing lists get updated quite often! So it is always worth double checking again! ^Kam

It's certainly worth a try. Places change all the time on results day and some universities don't advertise all vacancies. A quick call should clear it up for you.

Hello, I personally think that it never hurts to ask. However keep in mind that most universities will have a list of their clearing vacancies on their website or social media pages. The University of Leicester's clearing vacancies are listed at: https://www.le.ac.uk/clearing2018/. Alternatively, you can call our clearing hotline at 0116 373 6000.
