hello i have currently applied for criminology at my 5 unis ( uni of manchester being my first choice so far ) and I'm thinking of switching to criminology and politics, is it to late to do this? i haven't studied politics before but it is something I am interested in, I'm just worried I don't know enough stuff right now to be able to do it as a degree.

All you can do is phone/email the Uni and ask.
If you are certain about the other course, do it now, ie. before they make final offers.
If they can't switch courses, your existing offer will remain.

A bit late to be switching courses. Since you are moving to a joint honours course then it's possible because you are still going with Criminology. If you wanted to switch to say Law or Chemistry then it would be harder - a different department altogether.

Swapping will make you look like a dipsy la-la and the unis may question your commitment to the course. Given you have zero knowledge about the politics part of the joint programme I really have to question if you have thought this through?

Untrue.
Applicants ask for a change-course for all sorts of reasons and Uni are not bothered by this - and dont 'hold it against' applicants.
Asking for a course switch will have no impact on your overall application - Unis just want to fill courses at this stage, and they have better things to do than to use such a query to interpret an applicant's 'commitment'. .
