Clearing 2021

Clearing is your opportunity to achieve a place at university after your exam results come out, even if you have not applied or even thought about applying for university.

Clearing 2021: Your Tomorrow Starts Today

From 5 July 2021, we will be accepting applications through Clearing via UCAS. It is your opportunity to apply to the Scottish University of the Year even if you don’t get the exact required grades, have not previously applied, or have previously declined our offer. Clearing is open to anyone who does not have a place at university starting this September, or even if you have a place but have changed your mind on the course or university you want to study at.

We try to take account of all results and your individual circumstances, and even if your first choice of course is not available, we may still be able to offer you a place. Your first step is to look at the courses we can offer through Clearing:
