What is Clearing?


The Clearing process, which is operated by UCAS, is designed to match people who do not have an offer from a university or college with a course that still has places available.

Some people believe that going through Clearing is a negative process, but that's actually not true. It's simply a way to find you the best university and course for your needs and circumstances. In many ways students can actually benefit from Clearing, as you'll find out below.

When is Clearing?

For people holding conditional offers Clearing 2017 opens on A-level results day, which this year is Thursday 17 August. Coventry University will operate a Clearing Hotline which will be open from 7.00am on that morning.


What is Adjustment?

If you meet and exceed the conditions of your CF choice, wherever that is, then first of all, congratulations! 

In this position, you are eligible to use the Adjustment process, which allows you the opportunity to reconsider where and what you wish to study, whilst having the security of your place being held at your original choice of university for up to five days.

If you do fall into this category then we'd love to hear from you. Just give the Clearing Hotline a call when it's released and let the agent you speak to know that you are interested in looking for a place through the Adjustment process.

We can then get you through to a dedicated team who can have a chat about what opportunities we can offer you here at Coventry. For more information on the Adjustment process please see the UCAS website.
