Thousands of ambitious intelligent individuals secure their places through Clearing each year. We’re often their first port-of-call for information and advice. Make the most of our relationships to engage the audiences you need to meet your recruitment goals.

Get noticed in search engines

We’re at the heart of Clearing each year, with tens of thousands of Clearing students using our channels to find their perfect course. That’s why we rank so highly in search engines – UCAS content was returned in 47% of keyword searches. That’s above the average 32%, and far exceeds our competitors’ rankings at 6-7%. 

Be at the centre of Clearing journeys

Our channels are at the centre of applicants’ Clearing journeys. Drive calls and traffic to your website via adverts on, recruit directly at course level via our Search tool, and be the first to connect directly with unplaced applicants in their application. 

Drive conversion through campaigns

From campaign planning to creative optimisation and delivery, we’ll work with you to deliver high impact messages to maximise your Clearing recruitment. Make the most of over 200 audience profile filters to help you identify, understand and reach the students most likely to enjoy your courses. 

What our partners say

“9% of those that we emailed during Clearing went on to enrol with us… to be able to track that return is invaluable.”
