    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

    I'd say it should be alright.:yep:

    Might want to tweak a couple of tiny things on your PS if you're worried about it, but you are demonstrating that you know what you want to do further down the line which is good.

    Thanks! Even if it's not it's not the end of the world since the main course I want to go to is UEL. Just sent off the application so we will soon find out!
