How Clearing works
Clearing lets you search for and apply to universities that still have places available.
Clearing is a great opportunity to find the right university. This could be because your results are not what you expected or you decide to apply after the UCAS and UCAS Extra deadlines.
You can apply through Clearing if:
- You are applying after the end of June
- You have not received any offers
- You have declined all your offers
- You did not meet the conditions of your offers
- You have an offer but want to change course or university.
When you have your results, you can apply to study with us using the steps below.
Applying to us through Clearing
Find the course for you
Search the courses that are available in Clearing 2021. We usually release our list of courses available in Clearing at the end of July.
Found The One for you? Read about the course, what you will study and make a note of the course UCAS code.
Talk it through with us
Call us on 01904 809 700 to discuss the course and its entry requirements. Our call centre is staffed by our friendly student ambassadors, supported by our expert Admissions team.
If you prefer, you can also apply for most of our courses through an online process. Get in touch by emailing email@example.com
Have your results and the course UCAS code to hand. You will also need your UCAS personal ID if you have one.
International students: We accept a range of international qualifications. To check equivalent qualifications that meet our entry requirements, visit our international applications page.
Receive your offer
If we can accept you through Clearing we will make you a verbal offer when you get in touch. This will be followed up by an email with your offer in writing.
For Occupational Therapy, Nursing and Primary Teaching courses you will need to have an interview before we can make you an offer. Interviews will be online and you can do a pre-interview before results day. We will publish details 2 weeks before results day.
During Clearing you might receive a few offers from different universities before choosing which one to accept.
Make it official
Add your course in UCAS Track as your Clearing choice. By doing this, you are confirming that you accept our offer.
Once you have done this, we will confirm your place through UCAS.
Get ready to start
When your offer is accepted it is time to apply for your accommodation and think about student finance. We will give you a helpline number to call after you have had an offer so you can speak to a dedicated support team.
You can get to know York St John University before you start by booking a campus tour. Tours take place throughout the week, including weekends, and last up to 1 hour.
International students: Check if you need a visa to study in the UK and apply for the correct one. You can visit the UK government website for visa and immigration advice.

Sophie's Clearing story
Maria 2021 Primary Education (3-7) BA (Hons)
My clearing experience was exceptional! As a primary education student I was anxious I wouldn’t get a place on the course, however, I spoke to the head of the education department and she dealt with my situation. YSJ was the right choice for me and thanks to clearing I was able to enrol
Lola 2021 Occupational Therapy BSc (Hons)
I had my interview the next day and the day after I was in! It was exhilarating moving to York quickly and starting the course I had been dreaming of. There was nothing but good vibes coming from York St John. I applied everywhere in the UK and they made the application process easy and were so helpful and friendly. I knew nothing about York but knew I wanted to be there.
