Top tips for Clearing

Start by researching courses you might be interested in and make a list of universities to call on results day. Doing this in advance will mean you’re prepared when Clearing opens and you’ll have a better chance of securing a place on your chosen course.

Once you’ve selected the course(s) that you’d like to apply to, take time to also consider your accommodation options if you’re planning on studying away from home.

Many universities offer campus accommodation that suits different budgets and lifestyles and they often work with local property agencies that can help you find a room, apartment or flat share in the vicinity of university.

You’ll need to phone and speak directly to your chosen universities in order to secure a place on one of their courses. Try to call as soon as their hotlines open. 

Our Clearing hotline will be available from Monday 5 July 2021.

If you have any questions or need support, advice and guidance in the meantime, you can contact our Admissions team by completing our online form. We will then arrange a Call Back for you.

Information you will need:

  1. Your UCAS Personal ID number
  2. Your qualification results (for example: A-level, IB, GCSE)
  3. Your personal statement (you may be asked about your motivations to study this course, so make sure you highlight your love for the subject).

To confirm your place, you will need to make your final decision on UCAS Track. Universities will give you a deadline which are typically valid for a few days.

Once you’ve decided and referred your application, the university will complete a final check and send you a confirmation letter and your Track status will change.
