What is UCAS Clearing?

Clearing is a service that is available through UCAS to students from July to September. It is used to help applicants who have not secured a place on a Higher Education course at a University or College.  You can apply to Bradford College University Centre via Clearing if you fall into one of the following categories:

  • You have achieved better grades than you were predicted
  • You have decided to apply for University later on in the year after 30 June
  • You have not received any offers from your chosen Universities/Colleges
  • Students looking at a laptop screen.You did not meet the required grades set to you by your choice(s)
  • You declined all offers given to you or did not respond to the offers you received before the deadline

How Clearing works

If you fall into any of the above categories, you can use your UCAS Track account to go through Clearing. You will see an ‘Add Clearing Choice’ button appear on your UCAS track account. 

If you have not applied for any courses, you will need to create a UCAS Track account. If you have not completed a UCAS application you will need to do so before going through Clearing.
