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 ucas.com, 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
