    I'm applying to a foundation/bachelor course at UEL for international development so my personal statement is revolved around studying international development... obviously... BUT Sussex also has a foundation course which can lead to international development - the problem is id be applying to a 'social sciences foundation'.

    Is it ok to add this course to my application? Will they understand that I'm applying for the foundation with the intent of studying development and not think my statement doesn't relate at all?

    I'm literally about to send off my application, and it'll be a last minute change because I thought it'd be nice to have a second option just in case. PS, I'm a mature student

    Thanks

    There's no benefit to sending your application now compared to waiting a few weeks to get it right. The easiest thing to do would be to talk about interests that are common in both courses
