You’ve worked hard, survived the stress of your final year at school. You thought you knew exactly what you wanted and were ready to spread your wings. Then coronavirus took us all by surprise. All of a sudden your future isn’t so clear anymore. You’re tackling the restrictions and uncertainties that come with the world-altering pandemic that sunk its teeth into life-as-you-dreamt-it. Does this mean that you are the unlucky generation of students who should put their dreams aside? Of course not. The clearing process allows you to create new dreams.
There is no doubt about it. The last few months have been challenging. A lot has changed. Maybe you won’t get the results you’re hoping for because of the algorithm. Maybe you were planning on taking a gap year, travelling and volunteering abroad. Maybe you have changed and are no longer so sure of the degree you chose in September. Or maybe you’re worried about missing out on the real university experience. What was once your dream university might now only be offering online classes and you are already sick of solely studying remotely. Because being on campus and meeting new people is as important a part of university as lectures, seminars and studying. Maybe you’d rather opt for a university where you’ll get a combination of online and face-to-face classes.
Thanks to the UCAS Clearing process, you have options and flexibility amid the moveable response to coronavirus to create new dreams and plan a new future.
Didn’t receive any offers? Didn’t meet the entry requirements of your conditional offer? Don’t want to accept any of your offers because you’ve changed your mind? Or haven’t you applied to any universities yet? Then clearing is the next step for you.
Clearing is a win-win process for both universities and students. It matches university applicants to available places, helping universities fill up any open spaces they have and helping students find the best course for them. This is a perfect opportunity for you to re-evaluate your options and what you want.
This year UCAS clearing runs from 6 July until 23 October.
After the change in direction, research, phone calls and deliberating involved in finding a university place through UCAS Clearing, it might be tempting to sit back and relax. But there is still one more hurdle to cross: accommodation. As with most big steps in life, finding an exciting, homey place to live is crucial. If you feel good about where you live, studying will be much easier too.
