    HI, I have received all of my university offers, but after undergoing work experience I have had a change in heart. I have gotten in contact with all universities about switching courses and they all say that they have "re-opened" on UCAS or "still open for applications on UCAS" and that I should apply.
    Does this mean I need to make a new account or is there a way to alter my current one?
    Many thanks!

    It sounds like you haven't been clear enough that you want to switch courses. You need to send them another email, explaining what course you want to switch from and to, and making sure you include your UCAS number.

    But that's not how it works. :confused:

    Ring each of them on Monday and say that you have an offer for subject X, but would like to change to subject Y. You don't need to reapply through Ucas, it's a matter of the university's discretion as to whether they let you do this or not.
