    Is it possible to apply for Mathematics at the University of Glasgow and then apply for Material science at the University of Birmingham. If so will I have to write two personal statements?

    No you can only write ONE personal statement, which will be sent to ALL of your 5 university choices by UCAS.

    If you want to transfer to a different course at a different uni, then you'd have to reapply through UCAS all over again (and would have to sit year 1 again for that course, so you'll be paying an extra 9k).

    Yeah you can only write one but if u wanna apply for both courses u'd have to work something out to write for both courses 😂 Into the one personal statement which is kinda hard.

    Lol I applied to accountancy and finance and law with a biology & chemistry personal statement. I got unconditionals from the University of Glasgow for both courses, even when I'm choosing to do biology/chem. I was just seeing what would happen if I applied there lol, so no you don't necessarily have to write 2 different statements at all.

    I've applied to Diagnostic Radiography at different uni's and Adult Nursing at different uni's. One of the universities e-mailed me and specifically asked me to write a different personal statement devoted Nursing as my personal statement was devoted entirely to Radiography. But the other university that I applied to for Nursing didn't want another one.

    I doubt most universities care but some can be quite fussy. You might as well ask. You can most definitely apply to different courses.
