Hoping someone can offer a bit of advice. I have received an offer from Glasgow uni for joint honours history/philosophy (and am very happy) however don't want to study philosophy at Glasgow and would prefer to pick up celtic studies or classical studies. I did email admissions before I got my offer asking if possible to change to history/celtic studies but never received a reply.
Can I request to change subjects on offer to history/celtic studies or, assuming I accept offer and meet conditions, can I request to drop philosophy at enrolment?
I know I get to study 3 subjects in year one and ideally if I decide to commute that far I would like to study history/celtic/classics.
I am still waiting replies from Edinburgh for History and Stirling for history/philosophy. Stirling is just down the road from me, if I decide that a longer commute is doable (am a mature student with children) I would love to go and study celtic or classics as learning about a whole culture appeals to me (and am more excited about doing that than philosophy).
Am just kicking myself that I did not think this through completely before applying, until the last couple of weeks I hadn't realised that attending a university a little further away might be possible. As a SWAP student I had to fill the five choices and due to distance I thought Stirling was really my only viable option. I know it well, being down the road, it has a lovely campus and on a study skills day the staff seemed friendly and approachable. However I am much more interested in the variety/breadth of historical courses available at Glasgow and Edinburgh and more excited about studying them than the ones at Stirling.
Do they actually matter?
