Clearing & results day

Ucas Clearing is a way to find unfilled places at UK universities for the coming academic year. You can use Clearing if: 

  • you don’t currently hold any offers from universities
  • you didn’t get the grades to meet your existing offers
  • you’ve changed your mind about where you want to study
  • you want to make a direct Clearing application after 30 June

Find out everything you need to know with our guide to Clearing and our Clearing FAQs.
