    Clearing 2023 preview

    Three key insights we shared during this session:

    1. There are 3 types of Clearing student to consider – unplaced on results day; direct to Clearing; decline my place. 1 in 3 of those placed in Clearing used decline my place in 2022 – around 20,000 students.
    2. Early awareness is key to recruiting Clearing students – two thirds started researching the provider they ended up at before August 2022. Direct to Clearing and decline my place applicants increasingly plan use of those routes in advance.
    3. Multiple channels are needed to reach students across Clearing – in 2022, channels like social media and helped them find providers in the 'passive' discovery phase; UCAS search and provider websites became important during 'active' research.
