    I'm thinking of applying to two courses at Glasgow, but I'm not sure if this will affect my chances of getting into either course? The courses are both closely related, English Literature and English and Scottish Literature, and I think I should be able to integrate both of them into my personal statement well enough, but the main concern is whether the admissions staff will look favourably upon this. Anybody had any experience with this, or have any advice?

    As far as I am aware, although probably best to ask someone more qualified, Glasgow are still operating under their old system of applying to the faculty/college rather than the individual department. English and Scottish literature are both within the same college, so applying to both courses is really just a waste of a space.

    Thanks for the information.

    Taking this into consideration, does this mean that, for example, if I were only to apply to Glasgow for English Literature and be rejected, I would be notified if there were places on another similar degree within the faculty, such as comparitive literature or Scottish Literature? As opposed to applying for all three course within the same faculty?

    I honestly don't know, it's something that you might need to ask the university about.

    Same here, Nursing and Physiology. I think I'll e-mail them about it. I'll let you know if I find out anything more.
