    Does anyone know if it is possible to change courses at Oxford before I've even started the course? I have an offer for Mathematics, but would like to switch to pure Compsci/Compsci+Mathematics.

    I would suggest contacting your college at the first point, you won't risk losing your current offer if you ask.

    Tagging in gavinlowe, who will know more about whether it is likely to be possible or not!

    Wasn't your offer a Cambridge offer?

    As Lucilou says, get in touch with your college. It is sometimes possible. But the college will want to be sure that you have sufficient aptitude for Computer Science, and that they are able to provide you with suitable CS tuition.

    Feel free to PM or email me; it might be useful to know which college you've applied to.

    Glad I wasn't the only one who noticed this.

    To clarify: my offer is indeed from Cambridge, I posted in this forum to check if there have been similar instances at Oxford, has the structure of the two universities tend to be quite similar. Sorry if I offended anyone!
