    that first bit confused me a little. If you're asking if you can apply for SWs now as a year 1 on a 4 year course and then re-apply to the same SWs the following year as a 2nd year on a 4 year course, then the answer is yes but as Anonymous mentioned earlier, it's likely that you'll be rejected off the bat if you apply this cycle because you don't meet the criteria of being a 1st year on a 3 year course or a 2nd year on a 4 year course.
    Rejected off the bat this cycle, why? I said I'll apply saying that my graduation year is 2017. :l

    As in if I am year 1 now and am applying for SWs but don't get into any anyway, saying that I'm on a 3 year course when I'm currently enrolled on a 4 year course, is it OK to apply next year to the same places for SWs saying that I'm a 2nd year on a 4 year course?
    Yes

    If you're currently enrolled on a 4 year course, then at least to me it sounds quite dishonest to say you'll be graduating in 2017 when your degree doesn't say that. That's just me though.

    Lots of people have the option to switch to either a three or four year course.

    If yl95 genuinely doesn't mind between 3 or 4 and will do three years of they get a SW then it's completely fine to do as suggested

    Next year they'd just apply saying they've now decided to do 4 years

    Yeah, I really don't mind. I just figured it would probably be better to apply to SWs next year rather than go straight for summer if I don't get any this year.

    I guess they are reviewing it, but you won't hear until after the deadline. What division did you apply to?
