Guide to Clearing
Clearing is basically a way for universities to 'clear' all the spaces on their courses that have not been taken after A-level results have been received.
Clearing is used by students who, for whatever reason, are applying for a university or college place after the college or university as already completed it’s allocation of courses for students applying before July for the following academic year.
In order to apply to university via the clearing process you still have to register with UCAS (university and college admissions service). The difference with clearing is that you then apply to the university directly yourself. You do however still revert to UCAS when you come to accepting a place at university.
There are usually a lot of university courses looking for students after all of their offers have been given out.
