    Hi everybody!
    I have been accepted via UCAS clearing to study in UCA university. But because i am foreign, I do not know what to do next? Need i call to the university? Or maybe i can begin to search for accommodation? Dose this UCAS Accept means my 100% accept to the university, or maybe they can cancel it? Please help me, because i begin to panic what to do :woo:

    Thank you, please do not ignore me or BAN

    If your UCAS Track is showing 'unconditional' against your university choice, all is well. You will hear from the university in due course about accommodation - usually nothing much happens about this until after the UK A level Results Day. You could also try looking on the university website for advice for new students - there's nearly always something to find!

    OK, sorry - it seems that places gained through Clearing are listed differently. Unconditional/conditional offers are what people applying through the standard process (including Extra) get. Presumably you entered the choice on your Track when the uni said they would accept you, and then waited for this information to appear?

    Either way, it has the same effect: you have a confirmed place and you should hear from your uni in due course. UCAS will send you a letter confirming your place, and that will include instructions about whether there is anything else you need to do straight away.

    If you need a visa you will need to get that process started, though, and you will have to make enquiries locally about that.

    Looks like you're in. I think the chances of them cancelling are minimal.

    The university should be able to help with accommodation, contact them.

    At the moment, it's taking post INSIDE the UK more than four days to get to the desired destination because of the damn postal strikes. I'm sure you'll have to wait a little longer 1) for them to recieve the letter and 2) For you to recieve the reply.
    If I was you I would wait a little while longer, if you are worried about this then do phone admissions and explain the situation and you can get confirmation that the letter has arrived.

    I think given you have a confirmed clearing place, your place should be safe and they should contact you if they don't receive it. for important emails like this I would suggest you set it up in your email to ask for a read receipt so that you know it has been received and read.
