    E.g. at the start of freshers' week, or a couple of weeks into term? And between two language degrees?

    Edit: and do you have to write a new personal statement/interview with head of department etc?

    If it's within a school (so, in your case it's within the school of Languages) it shouldn't be too hard.

    Generally though, the quicker you get the process going after realising you want to change, the better. The longer you leave it the harder it'll be to change.

    Not if you're already at the University. You'd probably have to have an informal interview with the head of department.

    I'm not sure how things work if you wish to change the course you've applied for once it's been submitted to UCAS.
