    ive already applied and accepted a place for english through route A. immediately regretting not doing an art and design based course. don't suppose there's anything i can do about it now, is there? is it too late to apply through route B? is it even possible to cancel my route A application and make a new route B? ive emailed leeds uni re: applying for the graphics course and they said they would help me if they can but that i need to contact ucas and apply as a late applicant. is it even worth it? im already on a gap year and really dont want to take another.

    i knew i should have stuck with my instincts.

    ANY advice appreciated.

    Try out the english course, you might like it. Or, you could go for the english course, then transfer across to art and design? Talk to the uni you accepted again, they might have more positive information re: transferring courses. I know its an option at chester, provided i get the grades for both courses. Or, do an english degree, then do a postgrad art and design degree! What will you do with art and design when you finish? teach? Obviously you have already thought about it, but im just trying to prompt you into re-assessing the situation.

    I don't think you can do an English degree and then do a postgrad art & design degree.. You'd have to have a degree in art/design first, or at least have a few years experience in the field/industry.

    If art/design is what you really want to pursue, then you should cancel your Route A application or reject your English course and go apply for the course you want through Route B if it's possible. If not, I guess you'd have to wait for extra/clearing, I'm not that sure about it.
