    Hi, I've got a conditional offer from BA(Econ) Business Studies in Manchester university under social science. But now I think that Management in Alliance Manchester Business school should have been the right choice for me. Is it possible that I change the course when they've already given me an offer, given that the entry requirements for both courses are very similar? Or that the manchester school of social science and the alliance business school are different so I can't switch?

    Speak to the university admissions as they may consider a switch.

    If they don't want to switch it for me, will I lose my original offer? I'm so scared right now

    I don't believe they can withdraw the offer.

    So I should write an email to the department of my original offer? Or should I write to my "correct choice"?

    The central admissions department could be your best bet.

    No you wont loose the original offer. Just email the Admissions office and ask if you can be considered for the other course. If they say No, then you still have your original offer.

    Thanks. I'm really worried since the social studies stuff isn't for me, just the business and management stuff

    If you can't switch, you won't lose your offer.

    Manchester operates a devolved admissions system (admissions are based within academic departments) so you will need to start by contacting MBS admissions.

    So I should send an email directly to the Allience Manchester Business School? I've sent an email to the general enquiry of undergraduate admission but they haven't replied

    That should be fine - it might take a while for a reply because if they are devolved then they'll have to pass your request on before they can get back to you.

    Hello Geromi,

    I am currently studying at BSc (Hons) Management at Alliance Manchester Business School. My original application was for BA (Econ) Business Studies at the School of Social Sciences, just like you. If you are still in need of any help, contact me.

    Can you tell me how you changed it? Did you contact the specific department or the general admission email? Thanks
