Student rep warned everyone last night that there may or may not be some minor changes to the options we take in second year. We asked one of the lecturers today and she said which of her modules was going to be axed.
It's a very small uni so there's only around a dozen options per year. It was a bit of a shock as from what we'd been told it was a pretty popular course in previous years and when they did a poll earlier in the school year about which options we'd like to do in second year and according to the results this was the most popular module within the year group.
We've been told that some other modules are being axed and that they can't talk about replacements yet. There's an email going round at the start of April detailing the changes.
The option that's definitely being scrapped wasn't exactly the sole reason i chose the course or anything but it was an option I was very excited about, and at least 2 more options are being scrapped.
The course rep says that she doesn't know what she can do about it. They're changing the course before the next academic year begins so we're the last year doing this specific course. Is there anything we can do?

Make a complaint as a group. prob not your lecturers fault, just the fact there arent enough students/ money.

I would consider putting an UCAS application in now and seeking a transfer if you can find suitable alternative courses. You also have the option of starting a fresh degree if this is your first year of student finance.

We complained when she mentioned it in lecture, with around half of us saying something similar to "oh no we really wanted to do that option" and she said that she loved teaching it but due to budgets her hands were tied. Maybe it was a more expensive module to run or something?
I'm not sure I'm able to transfer... It's a combined english course so literature, language and writing and back in September when the rumours started about the changes in options I went to a couple more open days for unis I picked the first time around but ended up rejecting and they said that the majority of them only do literature so there isn't much of an overlap in first year courses and I might have to do a foundation year or start from scratch if I transferred.
