This is strictly hypothetical, but... say I just wanted to go wild and quit Uni and apply to a different one through clearing would there be anyway to get out of my house for next year or would I be stuck??

It depends on the lease, at the moment probably not and even if that isn't the case, it would be entirely at the landlord's discretion as to whether or not he would be happy for you to "surrender." He could sue you for breach of contract but that's the worst case scenario. I know you said it was a hypothetical question but if you did want to leave I would just try and find somebody to fill your space first; if your uni has an accommodation department they might even sort that out for you.

Personally, my lease enables me to pull out of the agreement at any time, but it works both ways, so does the landlord. That way if I dropped out of university I would just pay what I owed him for how long I'd lived there, and sacrifice my deposit - I wouldn't have to pay for the rest of the year.
Tenancy agreements vary from landlord to landlord...but make sure you know what you're signing, can't stress that enough.
