    Hi guys, I have an conditional offer for chemistry at the university of nottingham through extra and I want to see if it can be changed to a different course (different subject) but the admissions tutor for this department is on holiday until after the ucas extra deadline is passed.

    So if I firm/accept my chemistry offer is it possible for it to be changed to the course I want to do at that university if places are available?

    Thanks for your help

    Absolutely no one can answer this with any accuracy except the university itself, I'm afraid, and anyone who claims otherwise would be leading you up the garden path.

    how can no one answer this?

    all I want to know is if UCAS will allow a course change at the same university after firming another course at the same university before the extra deadline and changing it after the deadline for accepting offers from unis

    I know that no one can tell me if the uni will give me an offer but thats not im asking

    Thanks for any help you can give

    Because it isn't up to Ucas, it's up to the university. Ucas is only the postman. If the university say you can do this, they will notify Ucas accordingly, but no one on here is a representative of the university, so we can't say if there are spaces or if the university will accept you onto a new course. It isn't any part of Ucas's role to make decisions. It's the university alone, and you have told us that the person who can make the decision is unavailable.

    You're asking if you'll need an umbrella tomorrow, and carnationlilyrose is explaining that we can't say for certain what the weather will be like where you are.

    It is possible if they will let you. We don't know if they will let you. OK?

    If you know that already, why ask? Don't get angry because we can't speak for the university.

    I changed my course a month ago. I emailed the tutor from my original course and she forwarded it to the admissions team who changed it for me. They informed ucas! If the course admissions tutor isnt available maybe phone the uni admissions team and see what they can tell you! It can be done but ring them asap.
