    I've recently been given an unconditional offer from BU to study accounting and finance but I've sent off to change to Multi-Media Journalism. The offer for accounting was 320 UCAS points (I had 330) and the prospectus states that journalism is 300-320. Anyone have any experience of this sort of situation that could tell me the likelihood that I could change the course and still go to uni this year?

    Thanks.

    I'd be interested to know this, too. I've accepted an unconditional for Public Relations, but swaying more towards journalism the more I think about it. x

    Oh right cool, the bit I'm concerned about is that it says you have to attend an activity day before they give you an offer for Journalism but I'm pretty sure it's already happened.

    I actually just yesterday changed my course at Bournemouth uni from Advertising Ba to Marketing BSc. its a really simple process and is easy to do. Go on to the bournemouth website and there links that you follow if you are wishing to change course. it also has information on UCAS. Just email the adress the website gives you and tell him ( i think his name was Ben) your situation the course you have at the moment and what you wish to change to. he will then email you to double check everything and then ucas will be updated. dont worry about the points, my points have stayed the same even now ive changed, and they will 100% give you the offer as they have already accepted you. But i think only certain courses can be changed at this late stage. on the bournemouth website theres a section on courses that are still open, havbe a look there and i think those ones are the ones still open to be changed to, but i may be wrong, just ask the man all your questions and he is really really helpful.

    Hope i helped

    Glad to hear you were able to change your course, they're looking over my new personal statement at the moment so I've got to wait 'til the end of the week to find out if I can change or not.
