You’ll probably have to check individual university websites but usually I think clearing is for home students. However contact any unis that go into clearing and ask them

Hey guys,I'm an international student waitlisted for 2 unis. Do you know if clearing is open to international students too?
clearing is open to international students:
  • Applied through UCAS at an earlier stage (including after 30 June)
  • Been rejected by their firm and insurance choices
  • Applied to a course before 30 June, but were not made an offer
  • Qualified academically for a firm or insurance offer but have decided not to take it up
  • Have paid the full £22 application fee to enter Clearing.

clearing is open to any student with a ucas account, including international. you don't even have to have applied previously to enter clearing
Thank you for the responses! That's fantastic. Do you happen to know which unis will be open for clearing this cycle? Or is that info not disclosed yet? I'll keep my eyes open for that. Thank you again

sorry, i updated my post because i checked another website and there are some conditions, but i believe you would qualify anyway. if youre not sure, DM ucas on twitter. they can give you specific advice and theyre very helpful.

and i believe universities that will be in clearing will be posted online from July, but some unis indicate before that they might be in clearing.

Ahh yes, no worries, the conditions seem fine. I think I'll still qualify. Really appreciate you checking it up for me And that's understandable, only thing I'm truly worried about is 1) my UKCAT since I got 2470 (I know it's terrible) and 2) I'm aware home students will have the advantage of making calls to the unis directly, but since I'm overseas I don't have that privilege and emails may not be spontaneous enough ;-;

there's no way of knowing whether your score is enough, so try not to stress out about it. you can always apply next year! you'll be in medicine for the long haul anyway, another year might even be good for your overall career (more mature, more experience, more determined etc)

i do think not being able to call could be quite frustrating for you on the day. how far away are you? it might be worth visiting the uk for a day or two around results day or getting some kind of international calling plan just for a month (my family have one on our landline to call home)

Mm, there's that. But I graduated from IB last November and frankly this whole year is like a default gap year for me, I'd like not to waste another year. I have another Med offer overseas but.... It's not the same (lots of recognition complications with that). So if not UK, I'll end up going there.

I'm all the way in SE Asia haha, quite far. That's actually smart, thank you! An international plan for a month sounds decent. I'll sort that one out. Cheers for the advice! ^^ Are you waiting on unis to get back?

I don't think there has ever been an A101 course in clearing. That's not to say graduates may not have applied to the A100 courses available.

Why is it that when I was applying for A100, clearing for Medicine was completely unheard of, whereas now it is popular?

I'm going to guess a combination of:
a) Medical schools having more places.
b) Shake up in A-level system means that more people aren't meeting their offers and medical schools have places free.

Keep in mind it's usually the same medical schools which go through clearing. At least it has been in the past

Do you reckon any applicant who achieves AAB on the result day should not try in clearing?
