Accepting a Clearing space when I didn't apply through UCAS

I applied through a university's website (not through UCAS) for Clearing. I got accepted, but they told me I had to go to UCAS to accept my spot. How do I do that? I made a UCAS account but didn't complete the application. Will my info be in the UCAS tracking section even though I applied directly through the school and not through UCAS? I am an international student.

Hi Malia,

If you apply through UCAS now, you will be entered into Clearing.

The only way to obtain admission to an undergraduate degree course in the UK is through UCAS.

Look at: www.ucas.com

It might be more sensible to plan carefully, take your time and apply for September 2017 entry through UCAS.

Best of luck to you,
