SQA Results Day and University Clearing

Applying to university through Clearing can feel a little complicated and overwhelming but there is plenty of guidance out there to help.

Clearing is how universities and colleges fill any available places they still have on their courses.

From 5 July – 18 October, you can apply for a course using Clearing if you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college, and the course still has places.

There are a few conditions where you can use clearing including if you didn't meet the conditions of your offer, you didn't get any offers or any that you wanted to accept.

For more advice regarding Results Day and Clearing, visit the UCAS website.
