    I have an unconditional offer a from UEA to study BA International Development with Economics, which I firmly accepted. However I am having second thoughts and think that the BSc Environmental Geography and International Development course may suit my interests better. Is it possible that UEA could change my firm choice if I were to contact them, and does anyone have any experiences of doing this. Also, if I were to receive an offer for the new course, is it likely that it would be conditional rather than unconditional?

    It is possible they could do this. The best thing to do is to contact the university directly, as we can only speculate about whether they would do this and what conditions they would apply.

    Note: even if they agree they may have to manage the change off the system. Ucas systems can't cope with course changes very well after an offer has gone UF.

    Phone the Uni tomorrow.

    Many courses are now 'closing' - not accepting anymore applications so you need to do this ASAP.
    Just make sure it really is what you want before you ask for it.
