    Hello, I have to do my UCAS application in 10 days and I am still uncertain of my choices. I am thinking applying at UCL, Imperial, Kings and Bath (I preferably want to stay in London). But I have lots of courses in my mind. The thing is that I like both maths, biology and chemistry, but uni courses do not offer these 3 combined sciences. Therefore, I looked more in the field of biology and saw courses such as: applied medical sciences, bioprocessing of new medicines, biomedical sciences, biomedical engineering, biomedicine, biochemistry, medical physiology... The thing is that I know nothing about these courses, which seem all the same to me... Can somebody doing one of these biology courses enlighten me please??? Also, is it possible to change from one course to another "similar" one from the first to the second year?? IT'S URGENT

    You need to look in detail at the course descriptions on the uni websites - even a course with the same title will have different content between universities.

    Course changes can be possible, but again it varies from uni to uni.
