Can I apply before Clearing opens?

Clearing 2020 opens on Monday 6th July and closes in late September, but that doesn't mean you can't apply before.

Whilst many people apply before the initial UCAS deadline of 15th January, there are a few different ways to submit a late application.

UCAS Apply

If you if haven’t submitted a UCAS application yet and are still completing qualifications or awaiting results.

UCAS Extra

If you’ve already applied through UCAS and used all five of your choices.

Record of prior acceptance

If you haven't submitted a UCAS application and already have your results.

Direct application

If you would like to study and foundation or undergraduate degree on a part-time basis you will need to apply directly rather than through UCAS.
