What is Clearing?

Picture of our Flavio and EmilyIf you have applied through UCAS to study at university, ‘Clearing’ is traditionally a service that UCAS provides, which enables you to secure a place on a degree, if you:

  • Have not received or have not accepted any offers
  • Have A level or BTEC results which are not quite as high as you expected, meaning you do not meet the entry requirements for either your firm or insurance choice
  • Do not have a firm or insurance choice place confirmed
  • Are looking to leave another university and transfer to University Centre St Helens

However, if you are a mature adult, who is returning to education and has not yet applied to study a degree, ‘Clearing’ is a fantastic opportunity for you to be able to do this. See ‘Not yet applied to study a degree?’ section below.

When does Clearing begin?

Picture of our Flavio and EmilyClearing opens on Monday 6th July for those who:

  • Already have their exam results
  • Hold no offers at their chosen universities

For everyone else, Clearing officially opens on A level Results Day, which is Thursday 13th August 2020.

Clearing closes mid-October 2020.

"I applied to study at University Centre St Helens in late July, which meant that I entered through Clearing. The process was simple and easy to do online - I just completed the Clearing enquiry form and a member of the Admissions Team got in touch to guide me through my next steps. I was a mature learner at the time, that had not been in education for some years and I received all of the support I needed to secure my place. I have since achieved my business, administration and management degree - it is the best decision I have made for my career!"
