New for 2020 is Clearing Plus. Available alongside Clearing, this new tool is designed to help you find your perfect course.
Relevant to

If you find yourself without a place this year, we’ve created a new addition to Clearing to help you. With thousands of different courses available, we know it can be hard to find the perfect option.

To speed things up, we’ve taken what we know about you, and what we know about the types of students unis are looking for, to suggest some courses you might like. If you express an interest in a course, the university or college can contact you.

Don’t worry, you can still browse courses in Clearing using our search tool.

Who can use it?

Clearing Plus isn’t available for everyone. If you’re unsuccessful with your application or are applying for the first time for a place in Clearing, you’ll be able to ‘view your matches’.

How does the matching work?

First, we look at your original choices you applied for, combined with your qualifications and grades. Universities and colleges have already told us what courses they’d like to make available in Clearing Plus (no, not all courses are included in your matches), and the entry requirements for them. Then, we analyse what students in Clearing went on to study in previous years…

Our team then matches your profile to each course.

How do I see my matches?

If you’re eligible – you’re unsuccessful or applying for the first time – you will see a button in Track, ‘See matches’. Once you hit that you’ll be able to see a full list of your matches.

If you express an interest in a course, that university or college can contact you. But remember, courses in Clearing fill up quickly, and you may not always receive a call.

We’d therefore recommend you also look for courses in Clearing using our search tool.
