    Basically, do the departments you're applying for know whether or not you've applied for similar courses at the same uni ??

    atm I want to apply for business management and also international business management @ newcastle but I'm concerned that it may backfire if the department's realise I'm applying to other courses..

    thanks

    Yes, they can know about applications to the same uni, and in this case they'll probably go to the same admissions tutor, so they'll definitely know.

    Whether or not it'll backfire is another story. Those are quite closely linked, so I'd hazard a guess at probably not.

    Thanks. I actually thought it'd be the other way round, that if they're that closely linked it'd be more likely to backfire... hmm.

    Like I wonder if applying to both Marketing and Management and Business Management would be a problem.

    IT'S STRESSING ME OUT !!

    I'm not an admissions tutor so these are just my opinions, but I would guess that would cause more problems - they're still quite closely linked, but you'd be trying to persuade someone that you're interested in marketing whilst also saying, "But I don't really care if I don't get to do it..."

    Whereas with business management and international business management, you could do loads of international bits in business management anyway (I'm guessing, again.)
