Jazmin and Nicola both applied to Kent through Clearing. They give plenty of great advice as they explain how it has worked out for them.
Jazmin applied to Kent through Clearing when she realised her previous choice was no longer the best fit for her.
Nicola applied to Kent through Clearing when her grades were not quite as she’d expected.
We recognise what a difficult year it has been and our teams are here to support you in your Clearing application. We look forward to welcoming you in September to make connections that will last a lifetime.
If you are in Clearing, UCAS will match you to courses you may be interested in, based on information in your application.
If you’re unplaced or have started a new application, you'll be automatically shown your top 50 course matches. If you’re interested in a course, you just click on it and if the university still has vacancies and you meet the entry requirements, they will get in touch.
If you don’t want to apply for any of the courses you are matched to, you can look for available courses in Clearing using the standard searches.

I love the campus and the city of Canterbury. For me, it was really important to feel settled while away from home for the first time, and I found my second home at Kent.

I loved Kent. It was close to home but not too close. The campus was diverse. There were so many cool clubs to join. So much greenery and cute little rabbits running around during spring which always brightened my day.
