    So I want to apply for Nottingham Trent to do Psychology and I do want to do the 4 year course with the placement, but my target grades are BBB which is only 300 UCAS points whereas the 4 year course asks for 320. If I applied for the normal 3 year one it is 280 UCAS points so I am more likely to get an offer. If I apply for the normal 3 year course is it possible for me to still do the placement course once I am at uni or would I have had to specifically applied for the 4 year course?

    Hi simmyx1998,

    Sorry for the late reply!

    The reason why the psychology course with the sandwich year has higher entry requirements is because of the limited number of psychology placements available.

    However there is some flexibility to move to the placement course from the full-time course, depending on your progress on the course and the availability of placements.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions!

    Thanks,

    Ellen

    Okay that's great thanks so providing I do well it is possible to switch?
    Also if I did just apply for the sandwich course am I likely to get an offer with predicted grades BBB?
    Thank you.

    Hi simmyx1998,

    Yes, providing you do well and they have the placements available, switching to the sandwich course would be possible.

    Regarding the likelihood of you getting an offer, I really can't say I'm afraid! I know that the admissions considers applications on a case by case basis. However, I would recommend that within your choices you have a wide range of entry requirements, so the full time course may be the better option, just to be safe.

    I hope this helps, and let me know if you have any questions!

    Thanks,

    Ellen
