Course change IT -> Psychology - Admission contact adviceWatch
Hi guys. After going around Oxford Brookes university (which I loved!) I have come to the realisation that the IT and business course I applied to really isn't for me. When applying for UCAS originally I strongly considered doing psychology and I was initially going to chose it instead and ever since I have regretted not choosing it my interest in the subject has just kept multiplying. After consulting with my tutor at school we decided that the best course of action was to contact the university's (Oxford Brookes since I intended for it to be my first choice) admissions team to request a change of course. I know there is quite a gap between the subjects, although the grades required only differ by one (BBB vs. BBC). My main query now is what is the best thing to write in an email to them? If any one has any advice or past experience I would be greatly appreciative, many thanks!
You should write an email that includes
- UCAS number
- old course and new course
- why you would like to change
Remember that you are asking them if you can change, not telling them that you want to change, so be very nice in your email, because they don't have to say yes!
