    Hello,
    I would like to apply to psychology at Bath university and they have a 4 year course with a placemnet year which is my dream basically, however, they only take in 90 students. But if it turns out that I am not accepted to the placement year I would be more than happy to the normal 3 year course at Bath, which is still hard to get into considering that Bath is at the 2nd place in ranking..Is it a bad idea to apply to both courses in UCAS? Will it lower my chances considering that both courses are realy hard to get into? Is it a waste of time and place?

    Not sure if you'll really need to apply for the placement year, for my course at least even if we haven't applied to do a placement year, we can still choose to take one at the end of 2nd year, we just need to let the department know. I'd call them and check to see what they do when it comes to 2nd years on the 3 year program taking a placement year and returning!

    I asked them at the open day and they said that I should apply as they were 2 different courses. I am not sure about the possibility of transfering though but I guess its not strong since it's really competitive.
