Changing your application

Second thoughts about your course?

It is not unusual for applicants to re-think their course choices. If you feel that the course you have applied for is no longer the right one for you, please complete our Course Change Request form. The Admissions Office is happy to consider a request, subject to availability. Any changes made will be updated via your UCAS Hub or Application Portal. If the change is not possible, the team will be in touch via email.

Note: Please contact us by the end of August if you want to change your course(s), as it is not always possible during your first semester.
