    i meant like switch my course after a short whilein the first year, not do the whole first year of it.
    It will still count as a full year of funding. You should also talk to your parents and maybe careers master about your concerns. You should have some interest in the course otherwise it will be a long 3 years.

    I think you will waste a lot of money and time doing first year and then having to switch because you hate it.

    It's still June I would advise you to apply through UCAS Extra as this will close end June. For this first call the uni with sociology and tell them you want to apply to them, then call your uni and cancel the application - explain your situation. This process will actually be very easy since you already have your A Levels.
    Moreover you'd be surprised how many different opportunities there are with sociology - you will definitely find something.
    It's silly to pick a course that you don't like just because of job opportunities. The course if for 3 years but your job is for the next plus minus 40years during which means you'll suffer for 43years just because you wanted to find a job easily.
    Life is too short to do things that you don't fully love.

    Hope this helps.

    Have you looked into this: https://le.ac.uk/courses/major-in-sociology-ba

    You could do a degree that is 75% sociology with a minor in A&F (of vice versa: https://le.ac.uk/courses/major-in-ac...nd-finance-bsc )

    That implies that there's a good amount of flexibility in Leicester's course structure. It's worth contacting them to ask for the flexibility available (and even the possibility of switching from a major/minor to the opposite major/minor or to single honours after the first semester - that would give you time to get a feel for both courses without necessarily using up a year of finance and having to restart from scratch if you change your mind).

    The Leicester A&F course isn't accredited (looking at the ACCA website the accreditation expired in 2006) so taking either course wont give you any exemptions for professional exams (just a head start on the content required for those exams when you graduate and start working).
