Adding a Clearing choice in Track

Only add a Clearing choice if a university or college has given you permission to add their course, and you want to accept it. If you add a Clearing choice without discussing it with the uni or college, this may delay the progress of your application – read our Clearing advice.

In terms of finance, UCAS only manages the application fee, but we’ll explain all the uni costs here.

Student finance

Uni is a big investment, so you may need a student loan from one of the regional student finance organisations – they advise you to apply by around May/June before the start of your course. You might be eligible for additional funding from other organisations too.

What financial support are you eligible for?

Student support

Course providers can offer support in many ways. There are lots of social options available and lots of avenues of support for any worries or needs you have.
