I have an unconditional offer to study history at Oxford, which obviously I am really happy about. However, during my year out I have become much more interested in politics than I used to be and the idea of studying both is really appealing.
Ultimately I wouldn't be that arsed if they said no, because history is still my primary interest, but do you think Oxford would let me change to history and politics if I asked after starting? It kinda looks bad because the acceptance rate for history is a lot higher than for the combined course (apparently due to more international applicants applying to H&P or something idk), so I guess they might assume this was some scheme to get into a 'harder' course. It genuinely isn't - my interests have just changed a bit - but I can see how they might assume that and be like nah nice try
Anyone at Oxford who knows anything about the possibility of changing course from first or second hand experience, let me know pls. My college offers both courses btw :^)))
Over the Easter break
