Make a list, check it twice

We've put together a checklist so you've got everything you need in one place (think key dates, when you'll get your Clearing ID number, and when you can call us). Our Clearing lines will be open from the times below, and we'll have loads of staff on hand - from admissions advisers to academics - to answer all your questions.

Can I use Clearing?

Clearing is another chance to get onto a course you’ll love. It’s important to remember that even though it can happen quickly, Clearing is still a formal application process, so it's good to be prepared.

You can use Clearing if you didn't meet the conditions of your offer, haven't made an application (or made it after June 30), or haven't yet got the right offer for you.

The courses available to you will be different depending on where you're coming from, so pick from the options below to see the right list for you.
