    So, my back up Uni Man Met have discontinued my course so I need another uni to replace it doing either Politics/communication/media type thing.

    The original requirements were CCC so I need something to replace it with around the same requirements BEFORE 6PM tonight as that's when UCAS need my replacement.

    I already have 3 offers and an interview from my preferred unis, so this is my back up just incase I don't get what I need for those because I definitely need to go to uni this year because of the whole tuition fee shizzle going down.

    So, I NEED HELP! Just recommend a Uni I can look at? Or even recommend one which is generous with unconditional offers

    CHEERS!

    She didn't ask for you opinion on her choice of course, for all we know you're the one doing a useless degree.

    Excellent. It's all well to do what your heart is into, but make sure your brain is on the same level too.

    As for replacement courses, if you're into International Relations, google the league tables/list of universities, check them out and whether they offer it or similar courses. You have about 2 and a half hours, so research carefully and ring them up if you're unsure of something.

    Grades aren't always everything, if you can ring them up and justify yourself, it's possible to be accepted into most universities.

    What this lad said :ditto: The others are a complete waste of time and money in this economic climate. However if it's what you want to do then good luck to you

    Could look at London Metropolitan, Thames Valley, Marjons (Plymouth), Bolton, University of East London or South Bank University. They're likely to offer what you're after :yes:

    First of all, when did they tell you this? Because if it's today, phone UCAS up and tell them that's just **** - they can't give you a few hours, on a day when you've been in school for most of it, to choose a university. For all they know, you're trying to find another first choice uni.

    As for unis, depends on what way you want to go. If you want to stick to the cross between media and politics, perhaps international relations and journalism at De Montfort or media and politics at Liverpool Hope or media and international relations at Nottingham Trent.

    They're still open - phone them now and complain about it. Tell them they cannot reasonably expect you to decide on the place you could spend thee years of your life studying at within a couple of hours. IMO, they should be giving you until at least 1800 hours tomorrow; gives you time to actually look into them rather than take suggestions from people on TSR (and we've just looked at the UCAS listings) and maybe even visit.

      Depending on what you want from uni, though, has the potential to be nowhere near an enjoyable.
