Study at University Centre Leeds this September

Clearing is your opportunity to apply to study a degree if you haven’t secured a place yet. It gives you another chance to experience higher education at University Centre Leeds, whether your plans have changed or you’ve not yet applied.

Every year, thousands of students go on to study a degree through the Clearing process whether they've missed the UCAS deadline, not found a suitable course or not received any offers.

There's no need to worry about Clearing - if you have your results already, you can make an informed decision about the course you want to study by getting in touch with us:

How do I apply for Clearing?

If I have already applied through UCAS elsewhere

All applications after Thursday 30 June will automatically be entered into Clearing. However, we still recommend that you call us before making your application so that we can confirm your course details and eligibility. We can also advise you on your student finance and accommodation options.

From 5 July to 17 October 2023, you can apply for a degree using Clearing if you’re not already holding an offer, and the course still has places. You can use Clearing if:

  • You didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • You didn’t meet the conditions of your offers
  • You've paid the multiple choice application fee of £27
  • You’ve declined your firm place using the ‘decline my place’ button in your application
