Offered a place on course I never applied for, replacing a backup choice watch

    Not entirely sure what to think, I applied primarily for a couple of History courses at Edinburgh, tailored my personal statement towards these choices and then decided to, for the sake of it, fill out the two remaining choices with backup social science courses at Napier, Criminology and a broad Social Science course. (Studying in Edinburgh was my only option due to circumstance)

    I received an offer for the Social Science course but they have also offered a place on this course: https://www.napier.ac.uk/courses/bsc...duate-fulltime instead of the criminology course, which seems more specialised.

    Now of course I'm still waiting to find out decisions from Edinburgh but I am unsure which backup to use if it comes to it.

    I think I am leaning more towards the policing and criminology modules, it doesn't help that the optional modules aren't listed on the other course specification though.

    Does it list the amount of credits per module, it could be that there aren't any optional ones. I m sure if you email the university of there's are options they can give you a list.
