Subject changes

  • The following information relates to students on the Undergraduate Modular Programme. For all other courses of study, please contact Student Records and Curriculum Management.

    You may wish to change your subject of study if you consider your original subject(s) is unsuitable. If you are considering changing subjects, we would advise you to speak to the Subject Co-ordinator of the programme you are interested in before formally requesting the change. A change of subject is subject to the availability of places and to the approval of the Subject Co-ordinator of the new subject, who may wish to specify conditions that you will need to meet before you can formally make the change.

    Students on the Undergraduate Modular Programme (UMP)

    If you wish to change course in the immediate period after enrolling on a new course but before the enrolment deadline (end of Week 2 for full time students, end of Week 3 for part-time students) for the course you are seeking to join, please contact the Admissions office. 

    Before making an application to change course, you should contact the Subject Co-ordinator(s) from the new subject(s) that you wish to enrol onto and ensure that you are making the request for sound reasons. You may also wish to discuss the change with your Student Support Co-ordinators or the Careers Service. 

    Please note that acceptance onto a new course will be subject to confirmation that you have met the admission requirements and that there is space on the course you are seeking to join. Please see the How to apply webpages for details of the entry requirements and how to contact our admissions team. 

    If you are a Tier 4 student please seek advice from the International Student Advice Team to see if any potential implications for your student visa can be accommodated. 

    Once the enrolment deadline has passed, it is not possible for new students in the first year of their course to change subject in their first semester of study. However, a request can be proposed for consideration at the February examination committee for the second semester (or in June for January enrollers).

    You can request a subject change by completing the M101 form and returning it to programmesupport@brookes.ac.uk. 

    Once you have been accepted onto your new subject, you may also need to make amendments to your programme. Please seek advice from your Academic Adviser or Student Support Co-ordinators if you are unsure about which modules you need to add.

    Students on a course outside the UMP wishing to change Subject/Course of study

A change of subject or course is subject to the availability of places and to the approval of the Subject Co-ordinator of the new subject, who may wish to specify conditions that you will need to meet before you can formally make the change.

    Once the enrolment deadline has passed, it is not possible for new students in their first year to change course/subject in their first semester of study. However a request can be proposed for consideration for the next appropriate entry point for the course/ subject.
