Clearing matches applicants to university places that are yet to be filled.
Courses in Clearing aren’t just the ones nobody wants – there are many reasons courses are still available. It’s an opportunity for those who have missed their conditions or had a last-minute change of heart about the university or course they want to study.
Clearing can be hard to navigate and Cialfo is happy to support counsellors and students through this process. Running from 5 July to 18 October, your students will be eligible for Clearing if:
They applied via Direct Apply or UCAS
They didn’t receive any offers (or none they wanted to accept)
They didn’t meet the conditions of their offers
They’ve declined their firm place
They are applying after 30 June
