    Is it possible to make a second application to Durham?

    I applied to Glasgow for Biomed but now they no longer offer that course and gave me the option to either choose a different course or apply to another uni.
    My parents suggested I apply to Durham for a seond course. Is that even possible?
    Apparently so, will try and find a link but as long as the course codes are all different i'm pretty sure you can =) have seen incidences of it happening on tsr. Though whether its not better going for a different uni only you could know, do you have your heart set on Durham?

    Ok there's a link for you
    http://www.ucas.co.uk/students/apply...oapply/choices
    Note that UCAS says: You can choose up to five choices and there's no preference order

    Your application will be sent to all chosen universities and colleges at the same time. Each university and college will only see details of their course or courses that you've applied to. They won't see your other choices until you've received your final decision.

    Ohh...okay sorry then about the bunch of completely irrelevant info :egg: !
    In that case i can't think why it would be taking so long..maybe the arrangements you discussed didn't get passed on properly to whoever makes the decisions, though i'm really just clutching at straws here...
    Obviously your unlikely to hear anything until after the new year now but maybe then give the office a call and just ask how its progressing? May I ask as well, what is your application's status on the AES atm?good luck though again, my gut instinct is still with the fact that its a more unusual option within combined honours
    Still 'not yet received by a college', after over two months...

    (Thanks for your advice by the way )

    Yeah I'm guessing reputations aren't generally true. I know what you mean about the architecture, I may be atheist but it's just so pretty I guess it's true about size - I'd kind of like a smaller one (which Grey isn't), but I can easily get over that. Where else are you applying?
    I applied to Oxford, St Andrews, Exeter and Sussex. I didnt get Oxford, though I got an interview which was great, but to be honest, I don't think it was for me in any case - so I'm not all that disappointed, though of course noone likes to be rejected.
    ive got a place at sussex but theyve asked for the same grades as durham and durham is REALLY what I want, so I'm really happy about that.
    Still havent heard from Exeter and St Andrews

    Im also applying to a couple canadian unis as 'backups'.

    Where have you applied?

    Thanks I don't want to be a nuisance but it has been ages.... and I really want this one (sigh) I just wondered if I was being rather impatient and imaginative.
    I sent my application off on the 11th October, didn't get an offer from Durham until the 20th December.

    Well I'm half american half english. going to a canadian uni is a lot cheaper than the states and involves no SATs. I also do the IB and really good, internationally recognised unis in Canada ask for ALOT lower IB points than the UK. So though I'm planning on staying in Europe to be near my family, Canada is potentially an option as an international student with american loans. Its just to give me a few more options.
    Merry Christmas to you too good luck with Cambridge! I have a couple friends hoping to go there, my best friend's applied to Clare College.

    Ah well cheaper uni sounds pretty good right now If it makes you feel any better, I know loads of people who applied to Oxford, and I don't know any who got in.. Good luck to your friend, I bet they're as nervous of 6th Jan as I am

    Hi I've been given an offer by St. Mary's college. I am very keen to keep my music going whilst I am at Durham and I was wondering whether you could tell me what the music groups are and what they are like. (I have looked on the website but struggled to find much!) Also how many practise rooms does St. Mary's have?

    Hi, My AES changed at the end of november saying my application has been received by a college.
    4 weeks later and I still haven't heard back. Has this happened to anyone else? Any advice? Thanks

    Ditto!
    Lets talk music
    I think we can set up our own groups
    My Dad looked round the college and said there was a brass group there and people set up their own groups, not sure about official ensembles though
    What do you play/sing?

    they do it pretty much first come first serve so if there wasnt a huge surge in apps. just before you sent it off, youre on the 'maybe' list ...but from vast experience people are bloody happy wherever they go, everyone i know go on about how amazing their uni is lol....where else have you applied?
