First of all, every institution has its specific internal mechanism of changing courses, so it largely depends on the kind of institution you applied
If you are a student of any institution, visit your faculty and enquire about a change in a registered course. But if you are a prospective student or a new applicant, then we will kindly advice you to wait and see the success of your application before anything can be done.
changing courses from the same university or college
It may be possible to transfer to a different course at the same university or college. You’ll need to research an alternative course, and find answers to the following questions:
- Are there spaces on the new course? If there aren’t, are there other related courses you might want to consider transferring to? Try to find out more about the courses on offer in the department you’re interested in.
- Do you meet the entry requirements for the course you want to transfer to? Even if you’ve already completed some study at the university or college, there may also be some specific subject knowledge requirements you’ll need to meet (such as an A level in a certain subject).
- Would the departments involved agree to you transferring? You’ll need to discuss your new course choice with the course tutor to make sure it’s appropriate for you. You may also need to attend a formal interview.
- When can you transfer? Some universities and colleges allow students to switch their course in the first term, but you may have to wait until the next academic year.
