    So I finished my UCAS and sent it off only maybe three days ago but as the title asks, I now want to change my course but still apply to that same uni, because I only just found the course exists, but it would be a much better choice for me than what I applied for, and i'd be much happier doing that. The UCAS tracker doesn't allow me to change it without deleting that choice entirely it seems.


    Do I have to call UCAS about it or email someone, or have I ruined my chances and am I stuck with what i've done?

    You can swap a choice for a different one within 14 days of your application. You can only swap each choice once. You will need to phone UCAS to organise it.

    UCAS' website says "If you're happy with the university or college but you'd like to change the course details, you'll need to get in touch with the university or college rather than us [UCAS]. I don't know if this applies to people who fall within 14 day cooling-off period or not, so my advice would be to phone UCAS and ask to switch, but keep in mind that they might say you need to phone the uni directly.
