UWS Clearing 2022

Guide to Clearing

What is Clearing

If you haven’t yet secured your place to start your studies in September 2022, Clearing gives you the chance to apply to the course of your choice if there are still places available. Not all courses will have vacancies and some may just have a small number of places remaining – but check out your options using our vacancy listings and speak with our Clearing team. They’re here to help!

Find your place

Clearing runs from 5 July through to 18 October 2022. As course vacancies are filled on a first-come-first-served basis though, it’s best to get in touch as soon as possible to secure your place. Remember, you can apply through Clearing for the chance to start your studies with us if any of the following apply:

  • you’re applying for the first time for 2022 entry after 30 June
  • you’re not holding any offers for 2022
  • you haven’t met the conditions of your offers and are looking at other options
  • you’ve declined your firm place at another institution using the ‘decline my place’ button in your application

Where are you on your clearing journey?

UWS is my firm choice
