Confirmation and Clearing is a crucial time for many HE providers. It often involves the same volume of consideration and selection conducted throughout the year, but compressed into just a few days. This can present additional challenges for maintaining fair and professional admissions. Our existing good practice resources apply throughout the year, but we produce an annual guide that is specific to the Confirmation and Clearing period.
SPA’s considerations for Confirmation and Clearing covers a wide range of strategic and operational issues, including number planning, the awarding body results embargo, and applicant communication. This document is revised annually, in May, to reflect any changes in the admissions cycle.
