    Hi,

    I applied for engineering last year and currently hold a deferred place at Brighton for Mechanical Engineering however I have now completely changed my mind and decided that I want to go into teaching.

    Is it possible to apply to universities whilst still holding my place?

    No, you have to give up the offer and reapply via UCAS.

    You can speak to Brighton, and see if they will change your offer to a new course. But if you want to send an entirely new UCAS application, you need to give up your deferred offer first.

    What sort of teacher? I may be wrong, but I suspect you could become a Maths or Physics teacher with an engineering degree (plus teacher training).
