Top tips for Clearing

  • Don’t panic. Clearing isn’t as hard and daunting as you think. Simply pick up the phone to speak to the Clearing advisers, show your enthusiasm for the course and listen as they advise your next steps.
  • Take advantage of the opportunity to sell yourself over the phone, rather than through written words or a personal statement. Focus on selling your experience if you don’t have the qualifications.
  • Don’t feel pressured or rushed. Take time to reflect and make the right decision for you. You don’t need to make any big decisions on the day. 


Clearing applicants will be able to apply for on-campus accommodation and the University offers a range of options for all first-year students. However, as places are prioritised they cannot guarantee Halls of Residence for those accepted through Clearing. If applicants are unable to secure a room, the supportive Accommodation Team will be on-hand to discuss private accommodation options. Information on how to apply can be found on the Edge Hill website.
