    Hi there!

    I'm currently on my gap year and have received 2 unconditional offers to study social anthropology, one at edinburgh and one at manchester. Over the past year however, I've reflected a lot on my choice of degree, and decided that I'd have much rather picked linguistics. My question regards how easy it is to transfer into linguistics at edinburgh? As in, to take linguistics as one of my minor subjects and then to change it to my main degree after first year. I ask only because I understand how well regarded the department is and I don't want to end up going to edinburgh (arguably worse for anthropology than manchester) and having to do a four year course in social anthropology.
