Clearing takes place each year between July and September/October and allows students who are still considering their options the chance to apply for a Higher Education place at college or university. This can be as a result of missing conditional offers, or having a last minute change of heart about an institution or course.
Even though most courses begin in September, BTEC Higher Nationals are often delivered in institutions that accept applications throughout the year. Learn more below.
How to apply through Clearing
- Contact your local college(s) or research local Higher National providers using the UCAS Clearing search tool
- Discuss with them about what courses they have on offer and the recruitment process
- Choose your course and apply
