Get Ahead on Clearing 2022

What is the UCAS Clearing process?

Northumbria University’s UCAS clearing process is your opportunity to find a course with vacancies if you don’t have a confirmed place.

When does Clearing Open?

Clearing opens on 5th July 2022

You are eligible to go through UCAS clearing to find a place if you have applied in the current application year and if you:

  • Are not holding any offers from your initial UCAS applications or there are none you want to accept (including any through Extra).
  • Applied after 30th June 2022
  • You did not meet the conditions of your offer
  • Have declined all of your choices

You must have paid the UCAS multiple application fee of £26.50 to apply through clearing. If you have only paid the single application fee you can log on to your UCAS Hub account to make the additional payment.
