The information on this page is for students who wish to be released into Clearing from their offer at King's College London.
If you currently hold an offer from King's and wish to turn this offer down in the hopes of studying at another university, you can be released into Clearing. By being released you will then be able to take up a Clearing space at a different university, provided they are willing to accept you.
If you would like to be released into Clearing, there is no need to call King’s to ask to be released. You can now release your application via UCAS Track. Please login to UCAS Track to explore your options through “Decline my place”.
Getting released into Clearing scenarios:
My offer is still conditional, I would like to find out my results or take up a Clearing offer elsewhere
By being released into Clearing you will lose your firm and insurance university places. To go to your insurance university, you will need to be released into Clearing and confirmed in Clearing by your insurance choice, as a Clearing applicant.
You should call your insurance university, explain your situation - that you would like to confirm your place with them and not your firm choice university - and they will be able to provide confirmation of whether there is space available for you on your chosen course.
Once your insurance choice provides confirmation that they will take you through Clearing (they may provide a Clearing offer or reference), then you should then visit UCAS Track to explore your options under "Decline my place". Please be aware that declining a UF offer may be irreversible, so please do check the guidance carefully before you make your final decision.
I was made an alternative offer by King's and would like to be released into clearing
If you hold an alternative offer (an offer for a course that you didn't originally apply for) then you do not need to be released into Clearing, and can simply decline this offer through UCAS Track. Once declined you will automatically go into Clearing or to your insurance choice.
I would like to withdraw my UCAS application
By withdrawing your UCAS application you will lose all of your offers, and you will be unable to join Clearing and will not be able to apply for September 2022 entry to university. Please think carefully if this is the option you would like to proceed with before withdrawing your application.
If you would like to withdraw your application you can do this on UCAS Track.
I deferred my place at King's last year and would like to be released into Clearing this year
As a deferred applicant, we may be unable to release you into Clearing as your application is not technically part of the 2022 UCAS cycle.
Please contact us via King’s Apply in the first instance or on the day of Clearing call our hotline to speak to someone who can check if this is possible or you may be able to check this on UCAS Track. In the likely event we are unable to release you, you will need to withdraw your original application and reapply through UCAS, paying the UCAS application fee.
From here you will be able to accept a Clearing offer made by another university. You may be able to obtain a Clearing offer before withdrawing your application, and so we recommend speaking to other universities prior to withdrawing your application and explaining your situation to them.
My offer is still conditional at King's, I would like to find out my results or take up a Clearing offer elsewhere
Your offer with King's College London may still be conditional as we have not fully received some of your academic or English language qualifications. If you would like to discuss what is still missing please call our Clearing hotline.
If however you wish to decline this offer from King's College London and choose to go elsewhere please contact us and we will reject your application, which will move you to your insurance choice or into Clearing.
