    it is, but it's dependent on departments. do you have a legitimate reason to, or not?

    contact your seminar teacher, or your supervisor and ask.

    imo, it depends on the set up of your module. on one of my modules, there are two seminar groups. it's so personal the same guy does both of them, and provided at the end of the day (one seminar is at 2, one is at 3) you're on his register he doesn't mind which one you turn up to! if it's like that, there is a high chance they will swap oyu.

    for another module, there are 17 seminar groups. they are all lead by different people. changing seminar groups would mean a massive rescheduling, and some one else having to swap with you too. this would be deemed as too much hassle for such an insignificant reason, so you wouldn't be swapped.

    contact your supervisor or a member of your department ASAP, you could probably email them now if you were to look on your department's website and find the appropriate person.

    i wouldn't bother switching, personally. a seminar with different people allows you to establish new relationships with new people so you will find more friends & fit in better, also more people to later discuss uni work with. your seminar groups may be switched every term to allow for maximum 'exposure' to everyone on your course, so you switching back all the time will be redundant!

    uni is the time to grow confidence and get over worries like this, use your opportunity!
