    I first applied to study Computer Science with Management in KCL, but was rejected (in getting to study this major) because my application "is not as strong as other applicants", but I still got an offer from the university (conditional offer) in Electronic Engineering BEng. To be honest, I was hoping to get an offer (although conditional for now) in studying Computer Science and not Electronic engineering. Any ideas or help on what I should do???

    If you want to study Computer Science go to another university. Simple.

    King's have been offering alternative courses a lot this year.

    Well all there is to do is to decide whether you'd rather study what you love at a different uni, or go to KCL to study something you don't particularly want to do... to me it seems like an easy decision - study computer science at a different university. But who am I, a random person on the internet, to tell you to do so if KCL is your dream uni?

    It's more like I was willing to study in London, but so far it seems unlikely that I will go to London. I will send them an email to re-evaluate their decision if possible. Is there any chance they would reconsider their decision?

    I don’t have direct experience of this situation with a university, but I’ve found that most bodies are more careful about rejecting appeals than they are when doing initial screening. Follow their appeal or complaints process and maybe you will be luckier. This should be covered by the equalities act, so I think they will at least have to explain exactly how your application was not as strong as others.

    Can’t you start by studying Electronic engineering for the first year and take courses from Computer science. Then you can change to Computer science for the second year. At least in Scotland it is possible.

    It's different in England.
