    It seems to be like that for most universities (from what I've been experienced or heard anyway). Are there any resources for your modules where you can go and have a look at the fine details of what you are going to be taught?

    The uni I'm going to only allows 2 weeks to try and change courses after you've started first year.

    I just received my timetable and I see that in the 2 weeks, for the first week there's literally just an induction day. The second week I have 3 lectures. Is that really enough time to work out if Id like to switch courses? I am concerned about this. On the one hand, maybe that's enough to decide but im worried that I might think it's okay and then after the 2 weeks I want to switch courses.

    Is there a particular reason you are thinking you may want to change course? Were you excited when you applied or felt more so-so about it?

    I've pinched some advice on changing unis from one of our articles that might be helpful, just in case:

    If you decide it's not working out once you're at uni, you've got two options. You can stop studying at any point in year one and make a fresh application, or you could transfer to a different university at the beginning of year two following the completion of your first.

    To do this you’ll need to contact the university you’d like to go to and ask whether this could be an option and if they’d accept you transferring.
