Hi shadowdweller! Great to see this list stickied for students looking for help today.

I am going to piggyback the others here and ask if the University of Sheffield could be popped on the list as well. Our link is https://clearing.shef.ac.uk/

Thanks very much and keep up the good work.

Hey, sure! Is this link okay to use, as it would go direct to the vacancies?

Pity there were no clearing grades listed. Not very helpful.

If you go through to the page for the course you're looking at, it seems like they have typical grade offers listed, at least!

Sorry about that! We ask that people give us a call to see if they can be accepted onto a course as there are so many different grade possibilities with all of the various UK and International qualifications and other scenarios to take into account. We tried to keep things nice and streamlined on the website.
Our typical offers are listed on each of our subject pages if that helps?

Every year some universities publish their vacancies online before the official listings come from UCAS. While UCAS now leave vacancies available throughout July and August it's still handy to have all the links in one place.

Over the years, the wonderful PQ has pulled together the links to them in previous years in this thread, in this thread, in this thread, in this thread and in this thread. In fact, this thread is simply an updated version of the thread from last year!

Note: No listings - sometimes this is because the listings aren't available but often this is because the clearing listings look identical to their full course list. This could be true (every single course is in clearing) but it's best to double check directly and on UCAS.

DO NOT CALL ABOUT CLEARING VACANCIES UNLESS YOU ARE ALREADY HOLDING YOUR RESULTS



Scottish Listings:



Rest of UK Listings






Universities Not in Clearing

  • Cambridge: No adjustment or clearing spaces. They do run a special adjustment scheme for rejected applicants meeting certain criteria, but you will have been contacted about this if eligible.
  • LSE: No spaces in adjustment or clearing.
  • Imperial: No clearing or adjustment spaces.
  • Oxford: Does not participate in clearing, extra, or adjustment.
  • UCL: No statement yet - occasionally limited adjustment places.
  • St Andrews: Doesn't usually have clearing spaces.
  • Durham: No clearing or adjustment spaces.



Universities to treat with caution in Clearing



  • Private universities/private colleges: These universities may well make you ineligible for student loans or may charge fees in excess of the amount of loan you can get to cover tuition fees. If they offer the course you want in the environment you want the go for it, but be sure to check the small print on their fees and funding before you commit to a place.



With any university it's important to ask for and take note of names and job titles of anyone you speak to and ask them to confirm anything promised in writing.



Quick Clearing Guide
Spoiler:
Show
- Search for your subject areas/key words. There may be more than one; for example, you might find some courses listed in Biology that aren't listed in Life Sciences and vice versa.

- Note down the universities and courses that you're interested in. Then, get online and check out the websites for those universities; see if they mention the grades they want, and find out a bit more about the course e.g. does it have a compulsory year abroad or something that would put you off altogether.

- Also double check that the course is still listed as having vacancies on the uni website.

If you've got the grades and the course is still open and you fancy the university RING THEIR HOTLINE. They'll ask questions, if you match what they're after they might make you a verbal offer. Be sure to ask:
a) How long the offer is valid for
b) What accommodation is available
c) If they're running any open days over the weekend for you to visit, and whether they can hold your offer until after then

Repeat the ringing around until you're fed up of speaking. Collect a list of unis that have made you offers - DO NOT STOP AT THE FIRST OFFER.

At around 3pm, when track goes fully functional, if you've got an offer you want to take up then add it on Track.

As long as you apply within the deadlines given then your uni should confirm this place within 24 hours, usually quicker, and it will show as your new Firm Unconditional place on Track.Then you'll just need to sort out accommodation and let student finance know about the new university/course



If you spot any lists of courses in Clearing then please link them below and we'll get them added to the list.

Likewise if you come across a website of a university stating explicitly that they will not have vacancies in clearing/adjustment then please link that too.Image




UPDATE:

Durham was previously listed as being a uni to be cautious of, and it said they'd switched from 'No Vacancies' to 'Limited Early Clearing Vacancies' - this was a mistake on my part, as I'd not updated the thread correctly from previous years. They're currently listed as having no clearing or adjustment vacancies, and this has been the case for several weeks now.

Additionally, whilst they have held onto clearing applicants in previous years, this seems not to have been an issue, or at least not a prominent issue, in the last 2 - 3 years from what Lemur14 has seen when keeping an eye on this previously!
