Our essential guide to UCAS Clearing

If you’re thinking about university this year then this essential guide to UCAS Clearing is for you.

Our main activity happens on A-level results day.

Although it can seem fast paced and last minute try not to worry, lots of students get a university place every year through Clearing. Some students even wait until Clearing to make their first university application. They go on to have an amazing university experience, make lifelong friends and graduate with good quality degrees.

STEP 1: Before results

Make a Clearing shortlist

Write down which universities and courses you’re interested in. This could be a different course to your original choice or a university that wasn’t on your main UCAS application. Search our Clearing courses here

Connect with us on social media

Follow your shortlisted universities for information regarding Clearing and to ask them any questions you have. You can ask us your questions using #askbruneluni, see our responses to your questions here

STEP 2: On results day

Check UCAS track for the status of offers

Start calling your shortlist

Have your Personal ID number from UCAS Track and a pen and paper handy

If Brunel can, we’ll make an offer then and there over the phone

Book to visit us for a Campus Tour or Mini Open Day


STEP 3: Getting started at uni

Once you’ve made a decision and the offer is confirmed, sit back, celebrate and start planning the next steps
