I would like to apply to NTU through clearing and I already contacted them regarding the course I want and it is available.
However, I have already got into a different University (I've applied to a long time ago) and accepted their offer.
I received a letter recently saying I am in and I met the the UCAS tariff requirment.
Is it too late to email then and say I have changed my mind and apply to NTU through clearing? Thank You!!

You can contact the other uni and ask them to release you. It might be better to phone rather than email. It can take a while for them to sort this, so you need to ask NTU if they are willing to wait for you.

Thank you for the reply.
How long could it take?
Also, how would it be possible for NTU to wait for me? Can I actually apply to NTU before I ask my uni to release me or..?

Don't use the word 'release' when you talk to them.
Say that you are looking to withdraw from the course and university. If you call them, they will give you an email. You'll have to send an email saying why you want to withdraw from the university. Don't be harsh by saying something like "I've found a better university". Think wisely.
It shouldn't take long if you contact them on Monday. I asked a uni to release me today and it only took about 2 hours for them to do so. You'll then be in clearing and will have to add the course and university code of your preferred university.
Edit: Call NTU first and check that they have a place available and are willing to give you an offer. Once they give you an offer, contact the university you no longer want to go to.Last edited by johnfeb; 15-08-2014 at 23:43.
