Clearing is a process that helps students who have not yet secured a university place to find one, and is an opportunity for those who have not achieved the grades they needed, or changed their minds about what and where to study, to apply for courses with available places. The clearing process begins in July when A-level results are released. Universities will advertise any available places on their websites and through UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). Students can then search for courses that match their qualifications and interests, contact the universities directly, and submit applications. When applying through clearing it is important to be prepared. Before beginning the process students should research potential universities, make sure they meet the entry requirements of each course they are interested in, gather all relevant documents such as transcripts or references, and prepare a personal statement outlining why they would be suitable for the course. Once an offer has been made by a university it must be accepted within 24 hours or it will be withdrawn. This means that students need to act quickly if they want to secure a place on their chosen course before someone else does. Once an offer has been accepted there may still be some paperwork required such as signing contracts or paying fees but this can usually be done online so there’s no need to worry about having enough time before classes start in September/October, and are seem daunting at first but with careful research and preparation it can lead you towards your ideal university experience.
