Is the UK Clearing process for international students?
A simple answer to this would be YES! The UK Clearing Process is also designed for international students. Let’s cheer you up with some statistics. British universities accepted 68,680 international students by the end of the 2018 approval process. Of these students, 30,350 were EU students and 38,330 were non-EU students. This shows that you, as an international student, are also eligible to make use of this opportunity.
However, the only eligibility requirement is that you originally applied to study in the UK through the Universities and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS). As an added measure, you should also check with your preferred university and discuss your plans for applying during the UK approval process. You should contact the university especially if you are going through customs clearance just because you have not received an offer letter from them.
If you have completed and submitted your university application before June 30 and have not received an offer or if you have decided not to accept an offer that has been made, your application will automatically be forwarded to clearing. However, you are expected to submit an application fee of GBP 22 to participate in the liquidation process or GBP 11 if you had sent your application to even a single university before the liquidation process.
