Clearing explained

Clearing lets you explore your options if you haven’t yet secured a place at university starting in September.

What is Clearing?

Clearing is the process where prospective students, who do not currently hold any offers, can find university courses with available places. Around 50,000 applicants found a place through Clearing last year. Aberystwyth University currently has Clearing vacancies available across a wide range of its programmes.

Am I eligible for Clearing?

You can use Clearing if you:

  • applied after 30th June 2020
  • applied before 30th June 2020 and didn’t receive any offers (or didn’t receive any offers that you wanted to accept)
  • didn’t meet the conditions of your offer and your firm or insurance choice universities did not confirm your place.
