How Clearing works

Clearing is the last stage in the admissions process for universities across the UK and is your last chance to secure your pace for September entry. Luckily, we’re experts in taking you through this process as quickly and easily as possible. 

Whether you’ve only just decided to go to university, have changed your mind about what or where you want to study, or are looking to upskill to put you on a new career path, we can help you reach your potential. Whatever the reason, we believe that the Clearing process shouldn’t be stressful or confusing. This is an exciting part of your life and you have an important choice to make!

Can't find what you're looking for? We also have some frequently asked questions about Clearing, covering topics for both students and parents.
