    So basically i got accepted into sports therapy but I realized I would like sports&exercise science better. Can I change to sports&exercise science before uni starts ? Or only after it starts, in the first few weeks? Or could I transfer to it from the 2nd year, considering there are similar courses in the first year?

    It will vary depending on the university; some will allow it, others might say you can switch shortly after arrival (this is, in my experience, the usual option), others might say after your first year, others might just say no, but this is quite rare and tends to depend on whether they have absolutely fixed student numbers for each course.

    Your best option would be to call the admissions people at the uni and ask.

    What university is it (or, if more than one, which is your firm)?

    I've moved your thread to UCAS and Apps for now, as Educational Debate is for debate and educational issues, but if I know the university then I'll be able to move it to the appropriate subforum and current students might be able to provide feedback.

    I'm guessing if you meet the entry requirements for the new course, you can't lose anything by emailing admissions and asking. I am on my gap year now and applied to Worcester for Primary Education last year. Since being on my gap year, I decided I wanted to change to English Language. I emailed admissions and they said I could, no problem. So now I'm starting Worcester in September to study English Lang and Education Studies(Joint). So just email the admissions office.
    Hope this helps

    Thanks guys. I`ve applied for the Sports&Exercise Science BSc. It`s been a month and a half since then. The deadline for them to respond is June 30th, so fingers crossed.

    I am in the exact same position as you! I am studying Sport Therapy and wish to move onto Sport Science!
    I have just completed my 2nd year in Sport Therapy and i am wanting to change course to Sport Science but start in the 2nd year as both courses had similar modules in year 1.
    Do you know by any chance if that is possible?

    I think it is certainly possible. Just talk to the admissions office or someone from the uni staff and I`m sure there will be no problem. Good luck.
