Is it possible to apply for 2 courses at the same university? I couldn't find anything on the UCAS form or its help-file. Give me input!

Does it give you any disadvantage? I applied for 5 courses and based my statement on those (Math / Physics ). As sixth choice I put Management Science, I just felt like it... I guess it won't hurt!?

no, no problem at all but u must be sure that u'll get offers from at least some of them and that u will be happy in that uni and prefer no other coz it might be putting all the eggs in one basket... but then again all the departments work separately, probably none of the admissions offices of each department even know that u applied to the same uni in all those different courses... the worst part will be choosing which course...

I doubt that it will be a disadvantage, because its unlikely the admissions offices will be working together. But even if they did somehow find out you'd applied for different courses at the same university it may be to your advantage as it would show that you are keen to study there.

as long as they are not vastly different courses then you shouldn't ahve a problem. If you apply for really different courses then it looks like you are not committmed to the subject. Orignally i was going to apply for a mix of spanish and law and chemistry and law (God knows why now) but my teachers wouldn't let me and i'm so glad they didn't because i realised it was spanish that i really wanted to do at uni and not law and most definately not chem.

I applied for two courses at Salford. (Computer Science and Multimedia and Internet Technology). I decided on the MIT course because it was more what I was interested in.

I also applied for two courses at Bolton as one at the Met. I decided if I didn't get into either the Met or Salford I would take a year out and do some more A levels. Going to Bolton would have been pointless.

I applied for two courses at Liverpool - Orthoptics and Zoology with Evolutionary Psychology... kind of on different ends of the science scale, but hopefully my Orthoptics interview will go okay Interesting point there that applying for two courses shows how keen you are - will have to mention that in my interview!

As people said earlier, the only way it can be a disadvantage is that it can make you look like you're indecisive, and perhaps not committed to a particular subject
