    Got rejected from a course that was my first choice. Is there any point in trying again through UCAS Extra, or would that just be a waste of time?

    Also, would the admissions tutor necessarily know I'd already applied and been rejected?

    They did reject you for a certain reason.. And if you don't know that reason or can't change it, there is a high possibility you are just going to waste your time applying there. Secondly, do you have any other offers? Or does this uni have a similar course in ucas extra?

    Can I apply for a different course at the same university, or does the fact I have already been rejected from one course make it unlikely that I would be accepted for a different one?

    I am thinking of trying to get accepted for another course, and then trying to transfer to the one I want as it's easier to get on a course once you've already been accepted to the university.

    You can apply for a different course but you have to want that course. There is no guarantee you'll be able to swap - as you've already been rejected it's unlikely.

    Hi

    You should not reapply for the same degree programme if you have already been rejected. However, you are free to apply to another course at the same university. It may be worth speaking to the admissions team as they may be able to consider you for an alternative course.

    The admissions tutor will usually know if you have applied to any other courses at the same university but they will not normally be worried about this (we all applied for different degrees/universities and we expect that you will do the same). We do not see any of the choices that you have made for other institutions.

    Obviously if you are in UCAS Extra the admissions tutor will know that you have either declined or have been rejected from your other choices. Similarly this will not concern the admissions tutor in itself, he or she will be looking at your qualifications, reference, and personal statement.


    Good luck!
