    Hello all,

    I have an offer for this year but not from my first choice,

    If I choose to take it (due to the fee rise next year) instead of reapplying,

    Could I then apply for my first choice during my first year without cancelling?



    You could, but what would be the point? You're still going to have to pay the higher fees when you start the second course, and you'll have wasted a year of student finance on a course at a uni you don't want to be at.

    If you're that set on this first choice, then take a gap year and reapply.

    It's just with competition so high I might not get any offers the second time round, so having the insurance of the course I'm on would be very good.

    Thank you very much for you help.
