Traditional Clearing applicant
If you haven’t met, or think you might not meet, the grades you need for your chosen course, now is the time to see what we have to offer:
- Undergraduate degrees
- Foundation and extended degrees
- Degree apprenticeships
The Clearing hotline is 0300 303 6300 and phone lines will be open from 6:00 on results day (16 August 2018).
Check UCAS Track
The UCAS Track website is your first port of call.
Log in and check your application status, which will tell you whether your university place has been confirmed at your firm or insurance choice, even before you’ve collected your exam results.
If it hasn’t updated, it might be that your university isn’t able to confirm your place yet, and may still be waiting for some of your results, especially if you are re-taking any GCSEs.
Go and collect your exam results so you can see what you’ve got to work with and then you can get started with the Clearing process.
When you pick up the phone, have your list of courses to hand, your A-level or BTEC results, and your GCSE grades for English, Maths and Science.
You’ll start the call with a Clearing advisor who will take some initial details from you to see if you’re suitable for a course and then pass you to an Admissions tutor to process your application.

We will match up your Clearing choice and our Clearing offer, confirm your qualifications on UCAS and you'll see the acceptance displayed in the 'choices' section of UCAS Track. UCAS will also send you a confirmation letter and will explain whether there is anything else you need to do. You'll hear from us before the start of term!
I called the clearing hotline because I felt that Herts would provide me with a better academic and social experience.
