Clearing: Information for parents
For universities, Clearing is a process aimed at filling any remaining places they still have on their courses. For students, the Clearing process is an opportunity to make a new university choice should their circumstances change, or if they've simply changed their mind about what or where they want to study.
Scenarios where students may want to enter Clearing include:
- They are applying after 30 June
- They didn’t receive any offers, or didn't accept any
- They didn’t meet the conditions of their offers, such as receiving lower grades than predicted
- They have changed their mind about the university or course they want to study
DMU has a team of advisors who are trained to advise students going through Clearing, so should your child be going through the Clearing process, reassure them that there are experts available to support them. After your child has researched their options, they should call right away to hopefully receive their offer. Ideally, we would like to speak to your child on the phone, but you can be with them to offer them support.
