What is Clearing?

Clearing is for students who have not yet received a university place or not yet applied for university at all. This could be for a number of reasons; you may be applying through UCAS after the 30 June; had a change of heart about your university choice or you may not have been able to meet the conditions of your original offer. We are always happy to help talk you through the Clearing process and assist with any queries you may have about the University of Bolton, or your course of interest.


For further information please contact us on our Clearing line 0808 281 1111, email, or visit our Clearing page

You can visit one of our Clearing Study Advice Sessions in order to get more information about the University and to give yourself the opportunity to learn more about the courses. Please visit our Open Days page to book a Clearing Study Advice Session.

You can also chat with our staff directly via our direct messaging service.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Clearing Study Advice Sessions to find out more and speak with the team.
