What is Clearing?
We're here for you
Worried you might not get the exam results you need? Or have you changed your mind about your university choice or course? Don't panic we're here to help.
Each year thousands of applicants find university places through Clearing, so you're not alone.
Clearing is an ideal way for you to find a place at university if you haven’t met the conditions of your offers, or would like to shop around and see what other options are available. It's your final chance to grab a spot with us at Essex this year.
If you've got your exam results, we need to talk. You’ll know you’re in Clearing if your UCAS track status says ‘You are in Clearing’.
Don't forget, we've got guaranteed accommodation as long as you apply for it before 24 August.
