UCAS Clearing 2021

It’s not too late to apply to study at ICTheatre this September through UCAS

Clearing is now open at ICTheatre so there’s still time to apply to study with us this year through UCAS. Find out all you need to know about applying through Clearing and our current course availability below.

What is Clearing?

Clearing is how universities and colleges fill any places they still have on their courses.

From 5th July, you can apply for a course using Clearing if you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college, and the course still has places.

You can use Clearing if:

  • You’re applying after 30th June
  • You didn’t receive any offers
  • You didn’t meet the conditions of your offers
  • You’ve declined your firm place using the ‘decline my place’ button in Track

How Clearing works

If you already have your exam results, and you did not submit a UCAS application in the main scheme, you can use Clearing now. All students must meet conditions and enrol for 2021/22 entry by the 15th October.

If you have had conditional offers, but maybe didn’t achieve the grades you needed for your initial UCAS choices, you can use Clearing from 8:30am on results day (Tuesday 10th August) when universities and colleges place a list of their vacancies on the UCAS website. You will be able to add a choice from 2pm on this day.

There are no offers through clearing, just unconditional acceptances. For ICTheatre, this means we have to confirm that you’ve met any necessary academic requirements and have been successful in an audition before we can accept you on a course.


Courses available through Clearing

We’ve published a full list of ICTheatre courses which still have vacancies, which you can browse via the UCAS search tool.
