I originally applied to Bristol for criminology in November then got a rejection saying that I could be better in social policy now in January.
They said that my application was very strong and that they "hope" to consider joining on an alternative course and I am just wondering why I am not good enough

Heyyyy.

I just got the exact same thing- a rejection for the course I had originally applied for, and an offer for an alternative course (social policy) Unfortunately choosing to go to the alternative course does not guarantee that you'll be offered a place. It sucks- Bristol was one of the unis I was hoping to get an offer from but oh well...

It doesn't guaranteee a place, no, but if the university suggest you consider an alternative course they are giving you a strong hint that you have a good chance - it is likely that there were stronger candidates on the course you applied for and that there are still spaces (and you seem a stronger candidate than some who have applied) for the alternate. Make sure you fully investigate the alternative course though as there is no point applying for something you wouldn't enjoy, even if it is at your preferred institution.

I’m going to take social policy if they give it to me. The worst thing is I was too stubborn to even contemplate the alternative offers they give me and I regret it deeply

Unless you dont actually have the right qualifications you are practically guaranteed an offer for an alternative course - they wouldn't list it in the email it to you unless there were spaces.

Social Policy is a useful social science degree and is worth doing. There is also a 'Study Abroad' Social Policy course - definitely worth doing, you can go to the Hong Kong, California, Seattle, Sydney/Brisbane etc : https://www.bristol.ac.uk/global-opp...abroad/search/
