    I have applied to do social work at Brighton university and have an interview in a few weeks time. However I’ve decided I’d like to do the criminology and sociology degree, should I email them to ask if this is a possibility now or wait until after the social work interview to see if they make me an offer?

    Make an informal enquiry to admissions. Your interviewer may only be involved in the social work course, which would render it pointless. I would tell them now. they may or may not consider you. Find out their take on it.

    I’m in similar situation except I have actually received an offer for social work at my chosen University. I want to swap to occupation therapy 🤔 I have to do another personal statement.

    Ah I’m surprised you have to do another statement if you’ve already received an offer. I had an offer for social work from Winchester and they were fine about changing it I didn’t need to write a new personal statement, Brighton also didn’t need a new personal statement and I received an offer within an hour.

    Oh really! I was a bit suprised too! Apparently the OT lecturers will look at it but I will not be considered until they have looked st everyone else’s 😕 It is really frustrating having to do another but I am using bits from my one for social work so it shouldn’t take too long!
    Have you actually been swapped then??

    Oh wow do you mind me asking what university you’re going to? Yes I emailed them on Monday morning asking if it was possible to change my course and they said it was fine by Monday afternoon they’d changed my course on UCAS & I received my new offer letter today.

    I know I feel quite fortunate it was so easy now!! I’m sure you’ll be fine if they made you an offer before you’re obviously someone they want at the university. Good luck!! X
