Clearing Plus will match unplaced undergraduate applicants to relevant courses with vacancies. The service introduces a new personalised Clearing in 2020 and will allow students to move seamlessly between universities – with individual support on offer from UCAS through emails, social media, and over the phone.
UCAS’ new partnership with BBC Bitesize means students will also be able to access enhanced information and advice in more places online, as they continue their application journey outside school or college.
From early July, unplaced applicants will be able to sign in to Track (their online UCAS account) to see their individual list of matched courses, and easily send an expression of interest to a university. Universities can then contact interested students, who will be able to add a new course to their UCAS application.
Anyone with a confirmed place who changes their mind can release themselves into Clearing to see their matches.
When the online self-release option was first introduced in 2019, around 30,000 people used it, with almost 99% of those who reapplied successfully placed.
