Is there any disadvantage to applying to more than one course in University of Edinburgh?

For example:

Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science
Computer Science and Mathematics
Informatics (Masters)
Electronic Eng and Computer Science


Would I increase or decrease my chances of being offered a place by applying to all five?


All the above are closely related and my personal statement would be relevant for all.

Edinburgh is the only university in the UK that I am considering. If I don't get a place in Edinburgh, I will go to university elsewhere.

Shouldnt be but talk to admissions. If your range of course is too wide it makes you look indecisive. The real reason I would ask is because if you dont mind A or B then sometimes you can let them know and they will consider you for the alternative without using up 2 spots.

As it says here most colleges will only give you 1 offer even if you meet the requirements for all 5 courses but I don’t see it putting you at a disadvantage it shows true commitment to the university. As said above talking to admissions would be the best option they could advise you on the best way to approach your application.
