    I'm at University at the moment, and am applying to go to another one starting in september (personal reasons) starting in first year again. I'm writing my personal statement now and wondering should I declare I'm at university at the moment or not? will it help or hinder me? as the subject modules I'm taking at the moment are relevant to the course I'm applying for. But on the other hand I don't want them to see it and think I'm being greedy or something. Any advice on the matter would be great. thankyou!!xx

    As your current modules are relevant, I think that you should be honest about the fact that you're already at uni. Provided your reasons for wanting to change are valid and sensible, I don't see that you would have any problems. Think about it from the admissions tutor's point of view - they want to be sure that you're making the change (and let's face it, it's a major and expensive step to take) for the right reasons. Only you know what those reasons are, so my advice would be to be honest, but think carefully about how those reasons will come across to a stranger.

    I don't think you would be viewed as being "greedy" at all.

    Also stress your committment to study - the fact that you are willing to have another go even when it hasn't worked out first time round says a lot about your strength of character - many people would just give up!

    Good luck.

    You've just posted the exact same question in PS help and I have replied to you there. Please do not post the same thing across the forums - your PS help post would normally just get moved across to UCAS anyway as it is a general application enquiry rather than your actual PS.... but there is little point in me doing that now!
