What is Clearing?

University Clearing is simply a way to secure a place at university to start this academic year. If you haven't met the entry requirements for your course or haven't received an offer, you are automatically entered into Clearing through UCAS.

If you have only just decided to go to university, waited to apply later in the year, or simply changed your mind, you can do this during Clearing. You can apply for courses as soon as you receive your exam results.

Explore our Clearing course A-Z to find your place. Discover alternative subject areas, exciting new pathways, and kick start your career at the University of Cumbria.
