Clearing: how you can find out more

What is Clearing?

If you find you don't have a university or college place after your exam results are announced UCAS provides a clearing service which helps you to find suitable vacancies on higher education courses.

Clearing normally takes place between July and September, after exam results have been confirmed. Any places that UEA has available for clearing will be posted on our website.

UCAS also has a vacancy information service available on their website and this is the best source of information and advice during this time.

What is Adjustment?

If you achieve better results in your exams than you expected, and find that you exceed the conditions of your firm choice, adjustment is for you. This process provides you with an opportunity to reconsider where and what to study. Find out more on the UCAS website.
