How did you apply to Uni without UCAS?

You would have to apply to UCAS, selecting 1 choice (even though they won't look at it because it's past the deadline), with a reference and personal statement. You'd have to pay the fee and you'd automatically get entered into clearing, and be given a clearing number. I say 1 choice because 1 choice costs £11; any more than 1 costs £22, but of course your choices won't look at your application so you don't need to put 5.

Realistically though I'd say the best thing you can do is take a gap year and apply for next year, as 99-100% of the good courses in clearing will have gone by now, and it wouldn't be worth going somewhere just for the sake of going. You should take this year out and get a job, so you can have some money behind you to take to university, and have experience of the working world.

I presume you have to wait till September/October and go to uni in 2015. As all the uni places are likely to be filled by now.

I have a course that I want to go for and it's local and is based in a college rather than a uni, I was just wondering if there was any easy way around it or not!

There's not. It has to be through UCAS, for reasons like student finance need to see a confirmed UCAS choice, the college will want to see a personal statement and reference through UCAS and will not give out an informal offer without UCAS, as for their records all their accepted students need to legally have gone through UCAS, etc.
