Applying to 2 courses at same uni?Watch
My friend is only going to apply for 2 courses at the same university. Like you he wants to study meteorology, so he is applying for BSc Meteorology and MMet Meteorology with a year in Oklahoma both at Reading University. At the open day he was told that everyone will be given an offer for the BSc but the MMet is very selective and only 10 places will be offered from all applicants after interviews.
Great to hear that he is thinking of applying to the University of Reading! Whilst I can’t speak for other institutions, if anyone was unsure about applying to two different courses at Reading, they could contact our friendly admissions team on 0118 378 8372 and they will be able to assist further.
Best of luck to you all!

It is great to hear that you are considering applying to UEA!
Generally, universities will almost definitely allow you to switch from one course you've been accepted on to another if
-the two courses are very similar
-the two courses are within the same faculty
-the two courses have the same/similar entry requirements
-you request to change very early on in the first semester of first year
Universities also might let you change between two completely different courses. However, in both scenarios, this is not guaranteed. It may be worth emailing our Admissions Team at [email protected] and asking them for more information.
It is worth weighing up your options and considering whether you value making use of five separate university choices, or whether there isn't really any other universities that you're that fussed about, and you'd rather apply twice for UEA just to be on the safe side.
I hope this has helped a bit! Please ask us here if you have any further questions.
