    I'm going on holiday, won't be back till early September, is.it advisable to leave mycampus till then? I'm very lost and confused!
    Assuming you don't need to get on to pick subjects which will fill up fast then you *should* be fine.

    I have a forwarded email from an inside source We should recieve our info early next week, as they had problems with the server stability last week while current students were doing their thing and dont want to flood it.

    Tell me about it...

    Still unable to enrol because my tutor never transferred me to the College of Social Sciences last year. Even had to ring the uni and wade through all the crap for that information...

    Should be done on Monday though... Take it you've had issues too?

    Does Sociology fill up fast? I'm hopefully going to switch my degree course at some point (either contact my advisor or wait till I get there..I haven't decided yet), and I want to add Sociology after I switch but I might have to wait until I get there to choose it. Is it likely to be full?

    Also..sorry to ask so many questions but you seem like the expert around here..if I email my advisor and ask him/her if I can change subjects, do I have to go into great detail and explain my reasons for wanting to switch or should I just keep it simple? Thank you!!

    I'll laugh at the idea I'm an expert before anyone else does I think! I was really talking about getting registration itself finished, which for SAAS and matriculation purposes can be left until September if neccessary (although there is a registration deadline to get SAAS money in on time)

    In terms of sociology filling up fast, it's probably a pretty popular course for first year. This is just based on my impression of it sounding like the sort of course people would want to do. It's not "The beards of the English Kings" or "the typefaces of the French revolution".

    For that reason I would say it would be better to do it sooner rather than later. To be honest I have a feeling they might tell you to wait until you get there, but at least if you ask you will know for sure.

    In terms of explaining why you want to change it can't hurt your case to have a reasonable argument to put forward as to why you feel the new course is for you. I'd try and steer clear of saying it's your dream in life as it clearly wasn't when you applied a few monthsa ago.

    MyCampus tells me that the class capacity for sociology 1A is 600 while current enrolment is 32 - so I think the chances of it filling up are quite slim and there's no need to worry about it.

    Most of those capacity things are bull though I think :s the capacity for level 3 genetics is something like 900 but we were told there were only 40 spaces, it was a bit of a competition for us

    Does anyone know how to enroll on Statistics 1C (for Psychology students)? I would like to take it in year 1 but there seems to be no link or anything

    Statistics 1C (40 credits, Semester 1 and 2) has been scrapped in favour of Statistics 1A (Applied Statistics), which if memory serves me correctly is now a 20 credit course in the second semester only. You can find it in the course catalogue (just google Glasgow uni + course catalogue).

    I am not sure whether it is still a requirement for Psychology students.

    I don't think it is. I remember a friend saying that statistics is now fully integrated with the psychology course so students don't need to take an outside stats course. I might be wrong though, I'm not a psychology student!
