What is Clearing?
So, what is Clearing? And how does university Clearing work? Clearing 2021 is how universities fill any remaining places they have on their courses. From 5 July you can apply for a course via the UCAS Clearing process if you’re not already holding an offer from a university and if the course still has places. The UCAS Clearing process gives you more time to find a course you want to study so you can start uni in September.
If you've met and exceeded the conditions of your firm choice and you've changed your mind about where or what you want to study, you can also apply for a new course through a process called Adjustment. Both UCAS Clearing and Adjustment give you the chance to find the best course for you – just in slightly different ways. To find out more about whether you’re eligible for university Clearing 2021, read below.
Am I eligible for university Clearing 2021?
You can apply for UCAS Clearing courses if:
- You’re applying after 30 June 2021
- You didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
- You didn’t meet the conditions of your offers
- You’ve changed your mind about where and what you want to study
If you've met and exceeded the conditions of your firm choice and you're thinking about an alternative course or university, you can also apply through Adjustment.
If you're eligible to apply through Clearing 2021, we recommend starting your Clearing search early.

Student Placement Stories
Many of our students pursue placements while they're studying here. Watch the video to hear from Broadcast Journalism student Tom, and Wildlife Conservation with Zoo Biology student Laura, whose placements involved working at BBC Radio 5 Live, and spending time in Spain and Malawi.
Zahra, who studied Biomedical Science, told us about her placement and how it gave her crucial experience for her career:
“I was on placement at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital, where I was working as a Biomedical Science Trainee. I was responsible for processing patient samples, carrying out different diagnostic techniques and doing quality control checks. I’m very excited for my career, there are so many options open to me. I could become a clinical scientist, work in research, become a physician associate, or specialise in haematology or immunology as a biomedical scientist.”
