Your guide to UCAS Clearing 2022

Clearing is another opportunity to secure the right university place for you in 2022. From Tuesday 5 July, you can apply for a course through Clearing if you're not already holding an offer from a university or college, and there are still places on the course you want to apply for.

You are eligible to apply through Clearing if:

  • You haven't received any university offers
  • You didn't get the right results to meet the condition of your offer
  • You've changed your mind about the course or university you've applied for and have declined your place
  • You’re applying through UCAS after 30 June

For more information, visit the UCAS website.

Of course! There are no age limits when it comes to studying at university. We welcome plenty of mature students to campus every year, and you don't have to wait until Results Day to apply - if you already have your results, you can apply from 5 July when Clearing opens.

We know that no two applicants are the same. We base our offers on more than just your predicted grades – they're also based on your experience, your previous academic performance, and your personal statement.

Make sure you check your UCAS Hub on Results Day – just because you don't achieve your expected grades doesn't mean you haven't secured your place at Leeds Trinity University.
