UCAS Clearing is your opportunity to apply to university if you haven’t yet secured a place. But did you know that Clearing isn’t just for students who don’t get their predicted grades on results day?
There are several reasons why you may decide to apply to university through Clearing, whether you’ve changed your mind about your conditional offers, you get better results than you expected, or you haven’t made a UCAS application yet. Ultimately, Clearing allows you to choose the path that’s best for you.
We think the University of Cumbria is a fantastic place to get your degree, but don't just take our word for it!
Here's what some of our students thought about their time studying with us.
Primary and Early Years Education (3 – 11 years) with QTS
5th July 2023: Clearing opens! You can begin researching available universities and courses.
17th August 2023: A Level results day. A Level results are available from 8am – at this point, many students will know if they have been accepted into their firm or insurance places, or whether they want/need to apply to universities through Clearing.
6th October 2023: The final deadline for university submission via Clearing.
Depending on the course you are applying for, you may be required to have a phone interview with an academic or submit a portfolio. If this is the case, you may not receive an offer when you first call us, but we’ll be in touch as soon as a decision has been made.
If your child decides to enter Clearing, they will be looking to you for support. While you can’t call our Clearing hotline on their behalf, you can help them with their research and preparation. Results day can be overwhelming, so make sure they take regular breaks and encourage them to carefully consider all the offers they get before making a final decision.
As well as your results, your UCAS ID number and your contact information, we’d advise having your personal statement to hand, as this can be a great resource to refer to during your call with one of our advisers. Having your personal statement in front of you will make it easier to talk about why you want to go to university and why you're passionate about the subject you’re enquiring about.
If we’re unable to accept you on to your original course, we may offer you an alternative option instead. However, if we can’t provide you with a place, or you decline the offer for an alternative course, you’ll be released so you can enter Clearing or accept your insurance place.
