Make the right call. Here’s how to apply to Essex through Clearing… 

Clearing 2020 is now closed. Get ahead of the game for 2021 and find out how the application process works here.

Making an application to university through Clearing couldn't be easier. You can apply one of two ways; over the phone, or via our webform.

Either way you'll submit personal information, such as contact details, alongside qualification details. You'll also get the chance to tell us about any extracurricular activities or work experience you think we might want to know about. Your application then gets sent to our Admissions team and you'll receive further information via email.... Simple, right?

How do I accept an offer?

Fingers crossed we can offer you a place – wahoo! If you have applied through UCAS, you’ll need to log in to your UCAS Track and add Essex as your Clearing choice. This is how:

  1. Log into UCAS Track.
  2. Find the ‘add Clearing choice’ button.
  3. Enter Essex’s institution code – E70
  4. Enter the four character course code shown in your confirmation email from us.
  5. Celebrate your newfound future at Essex with your favourite dinner!

You can only add one Clearing choice at a time though, so don’t add us until we’ve emailed you confirming that we can make you a Clearing offer.

And if you’re not already in UCAS, no problem! We’ll let you know in your confirmation email what to do next and how to accept your offer.
