Although the official UCAS deadline of June 30th has come and gone, you can still apply for a Fall 2020 start if you’d like to start your UK degree this year. We’ll help you with UCAS’ Clearing application process so that you can begin your time in the United Kingdom as soon as you’re able.

About Clearing

Clearing is the application process that UK universities use to allow students to find open university places. When UK universities have available spots after the June 30th deadline, they provide a list of their courses that have openings. Prospective students can then check in with the university to see if they’d meet requirements and if they’d be a good match for the university.


Clearing period begins on July 6th and is ongoing throughout the summer and early fall. Some universities may not immediately be on the Clearing list but could release more spaces throughout the summer as UK and international students confirm final results and have official offers to their universities of choice. 

How We Help

Across the Pond helps students with the Clearing process so that applicants are making the best Clearing choices possible. Our help includes contacting the university on your behalf behalf to confirm your eligibility for an open course.  Whether you’ve already submitted a UCAS application and have entered Clearing, or if you haven’t applied yet at all, we are here to make the UK university application process easier for you!

If you’d like to apply for a 2020 start, please complete the form on this page as soon as possible! An Across the Pond advisor will follow up.
