News flash! What is uni Clearing?

If you are applying for university this year you might have heard or seen the word 'Clearing'. Clearing is a system by UCAS and UK universities at the end of the academic year to fill course places that haven't been taken. Every year thousands of uni places are given this way, and it's not a case of getting rid of the courses that nobody wants. This year, Clearing is open from 5th July 2023 and closes 17th October 2023.
