    hey guy!:p: i received an email from Brunel University regarding the course that I've applied for, however they said they are unable to offer me any offers, but they have asked me to join an extended degree program which will last for 1 year and then i can choose any course i like what do you guys think shall I consider the offer? oh one more thing they said they will give me the same privileges as those students enrolled.

    sorry for the typo in my title:p: it should be brunel University

    Have you applied elsewhere? As you may as well wait to get the decisions from everywhere before making a decision yourself.

    I'm assuming that you didn't quite meet the entry requirements for the course at Brunel, or something similar, which is why they're asking you to do the year programme first? Whether you do this or not dpends on how much you like Brunel and how much of a difference an extra year of study will make to you. The benefit of an additional year such of this means you won't have to make any decisions on your degree until you've had a little taster of university... although one would assume you can't take any course in the university, I'd assume there will be restrictions depending on whether the extended degree programme is science/arts/social science based etc, but I could be wrong.

    I would be inclined to say that if you get offers from elsewhere where you can start your degree programme immediately then you may as well go there, but only providing you actually like this university/course equally as well or more than Brunel. As I said, wait until you know from everywhere then you can make an informed decision.
