What is Clearing?

Clearing is an opportunity to be successful no matter where you’re coming from. What we mean by this is that we understand that sometimes life happens, and clearing gives you a second chance at starting your university career even if the following apply to you:

  • You didn't get the grades or meet the requirements for a conditional offer
  • You didn't get any offers
  • You didn't apply
  • You changed your mind about a university or course


What happens during Clearing?

Clearing often feels like a daunting process, but we try to make it as easy and stress free as possible. Clearing applications are treated in a very similar way to our normal applications - so you don't have to worry about a change in our regular service!


During clearing you will be asked to provide information about your current qualifications and what you would like to study at university. Our team will work with you to find the best options for you depending on your qualifications and interests. Please note that depending on whether you are a UK or EU/International student, we will have different ways of processing your application. So don't be worried if you are directed to apply through ARU for your CRIC foundation.

Our team is fully equipped and versed in all things clearing and are here to help you at every stage - so please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
