    I need to email the Undergraduate admissions at Exeter about changing my course. I spoke to my head of year and she said if I know her name to put 'Dear Mrs...' but I am not sure firstly as to whether I should do that and secondly whether I know her name. (I know it's a woman as I spoke to her on the phone)
    If you search the Exeter website it comes up with:
    Bunni, Lilian .. Undergraduate Admissions Secretary

    Is it risky to put 'Dear Mrs Bunni' or 'Dear Ms Bunni'?

    I'm not sure how formal it needs to be but I need to put forward a good impression. Plus if it turns out she's not the one that reads the emails I may look a bit stupid.

    How should I start the email? Thanks

    It may not be her (Bunni) and you may get the Mrs/Miss/Ms wrong.
    Best to go for Dear Sir/Madam (or Dear Sir or Madam).

    i'd personally put 'Dear Sir/madam' formal and doesn't look dippy if the person u intended it for isnt the one that reads it.

    I always say 'To whom it mat concern'. 'Dear Sir/Madam' works as well, however.

    Hey, I have the exact same problem as you. Did you contact Exeter? If so, have you had any response? I've had zilch.
    Thanks.
