    1. International Relations and French
    2. French

    This is just an idea. I know this will not put me at an advantage. I would apply for IR/Politics and Fr at the other universities.

    Would this be an acceptable thing to do or disadvantageous in anyway?
    Would this count as two UCAS choices?
    Any other tips, warnings, knowledge or advice?

    Thank you very much. All advice much appreciated.

    yes it would count as two ucas choices, it wouldn't really be neccesary to do as if they didn't accept you for ir and french then they could offer you either subject alone anyway if they wanted to do so.

    If you are applying to two separate courses even if they are at the same uni yes it counts as two choices on UCAS. The unis you are applying to for just French will question why half your statement is about IR when that't not what you've applied to them for so you really should just apply to one type of course.

    Hello all. Thank you so much for the tips and advice. These are really useful. I just thought I ought to clarify: if I were to apply for two courses at St A, it would be a) French and IR b) French.
    I would apply for French and IR at every other university because of the Fr/IR personal statement.
