Law - changing choice watch

    • Thread Starter


    (Original post by Ape Gone Insane)
    Hey, part of my Law application choices were

    University of Dundee - Scottish law

    And since Dundee (I think is the only Scottish university to also offer English law) I also picked:

    University of Dundee - English/NI Law.

    Separate choices. I got conditionals for both and was wondering if it would be worth me contacting admissions about dropping the English offer and replacing it with the Scottish Law with Philosophy joint honours?

    They also appear to have the same course codes (http://www.dundee.ac.uk/undergraduate/courses/law.htm)

    Anybody have experience on this matter?
    Surely a better way around of doing it would be to ask them if you can change your Scots law one to "with philosophy"? As one would assume that if you're serious about this then it'd be your firm choice anyway so you don't need the pure Scots one?

    I think you'd have better chance trying to change an existing offer than asking them to cancel one offer then give you an offer for a totally seperate course. But you could ask them and see what they say Stress that Dundee would be your firm choice etc but don't go over board with the telling them how amazing they are aspect, stick to why you suddenly want to add in philosophy - like a mini personal statement.

    If Dundee work the same three subject system like Edinburgh (I'm not sure if they do as I didn't applying there, sorry) then they might tell you to accept the Scots law offer then in freshers week you can change to 'with philosophy' or take it as one of your additional subjects in first year, then change to the degree you want at the end of the year.

    Edit: meant to add that you're probs better off asking this in the Scots uni section, but just seen you're currently in the law thread in the Ed forum so the people in there have already given you some food for thought on this matter.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
