Trying to secure a place on an undergraduate course for September 2023? Don’t stress if you didn’t get the results you were hoping for. You can still get a place on a course through UCAS Clearing.
What is Clearing? Simply put, Clearing is part of the UCAS application process. It pairs applicants with UK university places that haven’t been filled up yet, and it’s become a popular way for students from all over the world to secure a last-minute spot at a UK university.
To help guide you through Clearing, we’ve rounded up a quick guide on all the Clearing deadlines you need to be aware of. So do yourself a favour, and bookmark this page. It’s going to come in handy throughout the summer.
5 July 2023 | Clearing opens
Clearing officially kicks off on Wednesday 5 July. If you’ve already got the exam results of the qualifications you need, you can get in touch to secure your place. If you’re still waiting on exam results, you’ll probably need to wait until Results Day in August to secure your offer.
8 August 2023 | SQA Results Day
Scottish students will get their results on Tuesday 8 August 2023. You can check our list of clearing courses for Scottish students on our website. Then contact us by phone or online to learn more about your options. Our team will be available on Results Day and ready to hear from you!
17 August 2023 | A Level Results Day
Students from England, Wales and Northern Ireland will receive their results on Thursday 17 August 2023.
As soon as you get your results, you should get in touch with us as soon as you can to secure your place. You can contact us on Results Day through our Clearing Helpline or online chat.
