    They are entirely seperate systems. You can apply to as many countries as you like.

    You can apply to up to 5 universities in the UK using the UCAS system.

    It's unlimited in the US, but afaik you pay an application fee per university. They don't have a direct equivalent of UCAS, but the "Common Application" is similar(ish). Note that not all US universities support the Common Application. Notable ones that don't include MIT and the University of California system (e.g. Berkeley, UCLA)
