    Hey, I sent my application off a few days ago and have have received multiple offers. However, one university emailed me saying that while they'll be happy to give me an offer on my original course, they think I might be more interested in a similar course but with some differences and higher entry requirements.

    They said if I do choose to apply to the other course, and I fail to attain the grades for that course, they'll still offer me a place on my original choice. After looking through this new course, I feel it would definitely suit me and I would like to apply for it. But I'm unsure on how to go about this. Do I email the admissions at the university, do it through track or is there another way to go about it?

    Really appreciate the help!

    Thank you!

    So directly replying to the email that they sent and stating I would be up for changing to that course would be enough?

    Thanks for the reply

    I believe so, after that they should be able to send a conditional course change through your ucas track.

    Yep, just email them back and tell them that you want to go for the alternative course. They will then be able to give you a changed course offer.
