What is clearing?

What is Clearing?

Clearing allows you to gain a place at a university, if you haven’t yet secured one.

Clearing officially opened on the 5th July 2024, and for NMITE this will continue until the end of September 2024. Clearing is a great opportunity for you if you’ve missed the conditions of your offer, or had change of heart about the university or course you want to study. There are generally many different reasons and circumstances as to why students choose a university through Clearing. 

The best thing is to be prepared! Make sure you know what grades you need for your choices before you get your results so you can make the best decision for you. It might be helpful to have a back-up plan in case you need to choose a different option, such as one of our Foundation Year options.

Who can apply through clearing?

Who can apply through Clearing?

Clearing provides an opportunity for students to apply outside of most universities application window. Though NMITE accepts direct applications throughout the year, you may wish to submit a quick application through Clearing if: 

  • you have made a UCAS undergraduate application and don't hold any offers. 
  • you are yet to make any applications to a university for this September. 
  • on A-Level results day, you did not meet the requirements of your firm or insurance choice university.
  • on results day, you have met the requirements of your firm or insurance choice university but have changed your mind about going to either of them. In which case you would need to ‘release yourself into Clearing’.

Our Clearing Guide for Parents and Carers

As a parent/carer or guardian supporting a student, here are our top tips when helping someone using Clearing, both before and after results day.

Before results day

Before results day is all about getting prepared. Make sure you’re informed about what’s going on and help your child to get organised for the big day.

  • Know the process: Understanding what Clearing is all about will help you give the right support.
  • Keep your options open: We encourage you to submit a direct application to NMITE sooner rather than later, and to reach out if you have questions about our process. 
  • Talk about plan B: Make sure they know what grades they need for their choices before results are released so they can make the right decisions when exam results are published. It might be helpful to have a back-up plan in case they need to choose a different option, such as one of our Foundation Year options.
  • Talk to current students: Come along to an NMITE open day to chat to our current students and learn more about their experiences for an inside view.
  • Check how they’ll receive results: Exam results aren't shown in the UCAS application. It only shows if the application has been successful or not. Students will receive their results from their exam centre, so make sure you’re clear on the process.

When results are released

When results are released, focus on providing all the reassurance you can. Make sure you’re there to support and listen – it's the most important thing you can do.

  • Be positive and supportive: Give reassurance, stay calm, and remain positive. They don't need to rush into a decision, but we're here as soon as they're ready.
  • If they no longer want to go to their firm choice and would like to choose NMITE: If they’ve changed their mind about where they want to go, they can use the ‘Decline my place’ button in their application to release themselves into Clearing from a firm unconditional place.
  • Get in touch with us: A conversation can go a long way. Call 01432 804500 and our friendly team can help them to make the right decision and even offer them a place over the phone within 30 minutes.
  • Add their Clearing choice in their application: If they’ve been in touch with a us and secured a place, make sure they add it as their Clearing choice in their UCAS application, should they have one. They will need the course code (found in their offer letter) and institution code (N44) to add their choice.

After they’ve made their decision (welcome to NMITE!)

Once the Clearing process is over, you can still provide helpful support and advice to guide them through their next steps.

  • Help them prepare: If they've managed to get a place with us in Clearing then we'll be swiftly providing them with all the information they need, like support with accommodation, what to pack and other important enrolment information. 
  • Support mind changes: If they didn’t get a place, or decide to take a different route altogether, keep an open mind and continue to be supportive. They could be eligible for a a degree with a Foundation Year, or you could help them apply again in 2025. Our team is on hand to give them guidance on what to do to be successful in this.
