    Is it possible to apply to a different course at the same university through adjustment?


    Specifics:
    Currently doing Biology (AAA)
    Want to go to NatSci (A*AA-AAA)
    At UCL


    or should I just call them and ask for a transfer?

    Honestly both are for me, but feel that Natural Sciences provides more postgrad opportunities and better chance at job opportunities.

    Thanks

    I would think you could try either, although the number of adjustment places is very small.

    Well, adjustment has a five day window, so maybe start there. Although tbh you'd be having the same conversation so it doesn't matter what you call it.

    UCAS advises you call up the university, see if there's a place and do it all internally with the uni as it's more efficient

    That's a point. Well, he'll just have to call it asking for a transfer then.

    yeah I'll call them up either way after I get grades tomorrow, if I attempt to transfer internally, I won't lose my place on the Bio course right?



    don't think it will affect my student finance, lucky I'm not movin out.

    Hey Im planning on changing to a different course at UCL as well. Are you going to call the Faculty to see if you can make the switch?

    yeah, I don't actually know who to call, but I guess that's where I would try.
    I exceeded their requirements, so hopefully its cool.

    If you find out who to call or you manage to switch, keep me updated.
