    It depends on lots of different factors, including whether there's space. Do be aware that once you're more than a couple of weeks in it often becomes very difficult, if not impossible, to switch without having to restart the year.

    If you're certain that you want to change, I would strongly suggest that you ring the department(s) in question today.

    Hey, I'm doing Ancient History! I got into UoM through Clearing so basically saw the Uni for the first time today."

    Same here! Still having a few doubts - trying to find out as much as I can about the department and the courses, so I don't feel like a complete moron when I turn up. I'd really like to do some modern history units - is it hard to get on to them?
    I'm doing ancient history and Manchester was my insurance uni, my firm was ancient+modern. Chose Manchester because while I can take out other modules with the approval of the programme director ancient history students can take whichever (open) modern history modules they wish without consultation. It's looking like 1/3 of my modules will actually be modern history right now. Hope this helps

    Sorry if this questions has been asked by someone else, but have people already chosen their course units, and those in particular who are part of the social science department? I'm finding it a bit tricky on how to do it all, even though I've read the step-by-step instructions they've given us :/

    Long story short, are people picking their units now or waiting till freshers week? ALSO, the compulsory units, are they already set in our timetable or do we still actually have to choose them from the list, because I can't see my ones on there?

    you should join the living at home group on fb I feel the exact same tbh, is anyone else commuting/living at home?
    I am. It sucks that I only have twitter, I guess I have to become team FB also for the sake of participating in Freshers!
    Really want to go out and do some fun stuff next week but because I'm living at home I'm not motivated at all!

    I'm doing Sociology and I havent picked mine yet, I dont think we're supposed to pick them until next week

    And I THINK we have to put down the compulsory ones as well so we actually enrol on them idk.

    if you dont use fb, go to the student union website and there should be a link that says find your halls, a living at home one will be there and there's a list of events! and you'll make friends on your course next week (your department probably has a welcome event of some sort set up so you can meet people!) and sign up for societies at the welcome fair, during the year the societies you sign up to will have socials and gatherings so if you try enough you won't miss out
