What is Clearing?
As part of the UCAS application journey, Clearing is another service your son or daughter can use to look for alternative courses or universities to their original choices made earlier this year.
Clearing is also an option if they haven't received any offers, or haven't applied to university yet.
From Monday 5 July, your child can apply for a course using Clearing if they’re not already holding an offer from a university, and the course still has places.
If your son or daughter is eligible for Clearing, their application will automatically be entered into Clearing via UCAS.
You can get more information on our Guide to Clearing page.
How to support your son or daughter through Clearing
Help them understand their priorities
Encourage them to think about their top priorities for their course and university. There will be many new and exciting opportunities available in Clearing. Discussing the pros and cons of new courses and universities will help focus their research.
Take a Campus Tour
We realise how important it is to get a feel for a university before applying, so we're pleased to announce that Campus Tours will have resumed as the Government's roadmap out of lockdown continues.
Students and one guest can come to campus, take a look around our accommodation and facilities and talk to current students about life at Leeds Trinity.
If you can't make it to campus, you can take a look around with the 360 campus tour below or use our Virtual Experience to find out more about life at Leeds Trinity and the course your child may be interested in studying.
Top tips for Clearing
If your child is considering applying to university through Clearing, the best thing they can do is focus on preparing. Here are our tips for supporting your child through this period and ensuring the Clearing process goes as smoothly as possible.
The more research they do, the easier Clearing will be. It's important to really understand what universities offer; how suitable the course is, what accommodation and student areas there are and what the surrounding cities or areas have to offer for your son or daughter.
The Clearing process is a normal part of university admissions, with thousands of students using it to secure a place each year. It’s nothing to worry about and lots of their peers will be in the same position.
You and your child need to feel happy and comfortable with the decisions that you make together. We are always here to support you, so if you do need further information please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our Clearing hotline on 0330 058 4266.
Your child may find it useful to speak to current students at Leeds Trinity about all aspects of life at university. They can chat to our students here.
Some courses and universities can fill up quickly through Clearing, so the sooner your child decides where they want to study, the better. If your child has already researched their options, they may be in a position to contact their chosen university when results are released and secure their place without delay. This then leaves more time to start planning their life at university and get excited for September.
If your child hasn't already applied for student finance, they will need to do so immediately at studentfinance.campaign.gov.uk to arrange their funding.
If they've already applied for finance, but their course or university has changed through Clearing, they will need to let Student Finance England know as soon as possible by logging in to their account at gov.uk/student-finance and updating the details so there will be no delay once they start their academic year.
For further information, please contact our Student Adviser, Emma Quirke, at email@example.com for advice on what to do regarding your student finance application.
