Hi, I'm currently on level 5 of an FdSc. When I applied, there was an option of a top up, for the full degree. Today I attempted to apply for the top up and it's no longer available on the UCAS website, nor my uni's. I emailed the program leader and basically he said they can't advertise it yet, as our awarding body has changed. It's only a university centre so the courses are validated by actual universities. I then asked how that will affect me, who our awarding body will be and what changes we should expect. He's not allowed to answer those questions. The voice from above, said so. My whole class is rightly concerned, as we all signed up for the Fd on the basis the BSc would contain the modules it did, when advertised. Is there anything we can do, it all seems underhand, a little surreptitious and out of order that nobody has had the dignity to speak to us and people are told to keep what is actually going on, away from us? Thanks

I would use your voice to protest. If it's a collective problem that affects you all, maybe try writing a letter to a figure in authority explaining your concern and asking for answers in a formal manner.
If that doesn't work than go public, maybe talk to a local student newspaper or publications like The Tab; sometimes going public and putting pressure can help get answers, as your course provider won't like the negative publicity.
Try asking peacefully and politely first, there's no point jumping in all guns blazing if it could all be sorted out simply.
Hope that helps a bit
