    I just got an email from Aberystwyth University telling me that they have decided to discontinue the course they that offered me a place on, and left me with three options;
    -I take a place on a similar course there
    -I take a place on an entirely different course there
    -I apply to another course at another uni
    Now considering everything, I don't really think I trust this University anymore- so I want to apply for another course somewhere else, but how tf do I do that?? It doesn't say anything about the course being discontinued on track-- pls help

    Have you applied anywhere else you'd like to go? If not and you've had all your decisions reject all offers and go through clearing.

    Maybe consider this as an opportunity too. Perhaps you could get into a better course with higher requirements?

    It's sad, but it happens. Universities can discontinue any course for a new cohort for a multitude of reasons. It's not necessarily a reason to distrust the university itself, but if you will feel resentful towards them if you go there, then maybe it's best if you go elsewhere.

    Do you have any other offers from other unis?

    You need to ring or email the admissions team saying you want to substitute another university for the cancelled course. Say which university and course you want to change it to. Aber should speak to ucas and the university concerned to arrange the swap to show on Track.

    Ring ucas and ask them to substitute your choice for which ever one you want to change it for.

    Ucas cannot do that without getting notification from aber.

    Op needs to ring Aber and they need to sort out the swap.

    Yeah, once they've ringed Aber and OP has explained they want to substitute then UCAS can change it once Aber have notified UCAS.

    OP will not need to contact UCAS at all. Aber will make the arrangements on their behalf. The whole point is that Aber have messed up and so need to put in the work to put things right - that means they sort things out with UCAS AND the university OP wants to swap to.
