I want to apply to a new university that's not on my application. Stupidly I've accepted an offer from Nottingham but Ive changed my mind and want to go to Middlesex instead. Ive used up all my ucas choices as well. What can I do? Thanks for help

I think you're stuck unless you wait and apply next year or go into clearing and hope for the best. This is why its good to try and make informed choices about uni's before you put them down on UCAS. If you're still indecisive, I'd avoid clearing and maybe try again next year when you've had a think about what you for sure want. What if you change your mind again?

Can you not decline all of them and apply through UCAS extra...? Even after accepting it.. A girl in my class is in a similar situation and I think she emailed UCAS, they told her to apply through extra.

First contact Middlesex and explain your circumstances. Find out if they have places available and whether they will look at your application. Preferably try to ascertain whether they will make you an offer though they might not reveal this officially.

Then, as suggested above, decline all your existing offers and apply to Middlesex through Extra.

Ditto what ageshallnot says.

Can I ask, however, why you have decided that you would prefer to go to Middlesex instead of Nottingham? Assuming you mean the University of Nottingham and not Nottingham Trent, Nottingham is generally reckoned to be a much better university overall.

I'd rather go Topsex or Bottomsex myself.

I think everyone here has missed the fact that OP has already made his replies, so he can't decline anything.

Nottingham has to reject him (if the offer is conditional) or release him (if the offer is unconditional). Then he can apply to Middlesex if the course is in Extra (assuming there is no insurance choice).

Firstly, you need to establish whether the course at Middlesex is in Extra. Then you need to contact the university asking if they would consider your application, and asking the probability of getting an offer. You need to explain that you have already accpeted an offer but have changer your mind.

If they give you the thumbs up, you need to contact Nottingham (Trent?) asking them to reject or release you (see above). Once that happens, and assuming you don't have an insurance choice, you will be in Extra.

Nottingham or Trent?

Anyway, find out if Middlesex would accept you through extra. Get Nottingham to reject you (and your insurance if you have one). Apply to Middlesex through Extra.
