From filling in your application and writing a personal statement to all the key dates you need to know, this guide has all the information you need to know for applying to university.


What is Clearing?

From 5 July to 23 October, you can apply for a course using Clearing if you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college, and the course still has places.

You can use Clearing if:

  • you’re applying after 30 June

  • you didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)

  • you didn’t meet the conditions of your offers

This helpful guide outlines all you need to know about securing a university place through Clearing.
