    I have applied for computer games programming at Staffordshire uni. Is it possible to change the course to computing science without going through clearing?
    (Also will it effect my application for accommodation?)

    Thanks

    Yes, if you ring them up and ask them now they might be willing to change it. If you have a decision already on the original course choice, they can consider moving it to the other; if they won't offer you the other course you should still be able to hang on to the offer you have.

    If you are applying for accommodation as a firm but conditional offer holder, switching courses at this stage shouldn't affect your chances of getting what you've requested. It is usually only if you become a Clearing applicant that your place in the accommodation list changes. This might happen if, for example, you missed the conditions of your firm offer and then applied successfully through Clearing for something else. If they offered you an alternative up front (as in "you missed your offer, we can't take you for your original course but we'll offer you this instead" ), it varies from uni to uni what your accommodation position would be.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I'll give them a call on Monday. I'm hoping because they are simular subjects it'll be easy to sort out.
