UCAS Clearing 2018

Mentor International | UCAS application assistance services


How does Clearing work?

Clearing is how unis and colleges fill any places they still have on their courses. It’s an ideal way for you to find another course. You find courses (with vacancies) that interest you, and contact universities or colleges directly, to see if they will offer you a place.


If you haven’t already applied, you need to register and make an application, but you’ll only be able to add a choice after you’ve submitted it. We’ll send you a welcome email, with details of how to access Track, and your Clearing number. We’ll also tell you the steps you need to follow – ask for advice, search for vacancies in our search tool, then contact unis and colleges to try to find a place – see below for more details. Once you have permission from a uni you want to go to, you can add the course in Track.

You’ll know you’re in Clearing if your Track status says ‘You are in Clearing’ or ‘Clearing has started’.

If Track doesn’t say either of these yet, it might just be waiting for your results to update. Get in touch with the universities/colleges if it’s taking a while – they might still be considering you, even if your results are a bit lower than required.

If you originally only applied for one course for the reduced fee of £13, you’ll have to pay an additional £11 to apply through Clearing.

UCAS Conservatoires do not use Clearing to fill vacancies. If you’re looking for a place at a conservatoire, please search for available courses in our search tool. You’ll also need to check with the conservatoire if they’re still accepting applications, before you apply.
