If I originally applied for an integrated masters course at a university, but now wanted to change my application so that I am instead applying for the 3-year course at the same university, would this have to be done via contacting the university themselves or through the UCAS substitution option? Also, if I had to ask the university directly do you think this would affect my chances of receiving an offer as they have noticed me change my application from the 4-year to the 3-year course?

Just email the Uni.
Its quite common for applicants to do this after application and Unis really do not mind.

Sorry, I have just one last question. When I sent in my MAT application form, it asked me to tick off the courses that I am applying for that were on the sheet and on it I ticked off that I am applying for the Masters course, so on there it shall say I am applying for the Masters course. Do you know what I should do about this?

Okay. Do you think this may negatively affect my chances of receiving an offer?

No - why should it?

I'm not sure, I may just be overthinking stuff. I was concerned that they may think I don't want to study there as much as I did initially if I now only want to apply for the 3 instead of 4 year course (which is of course not true), and if it causes them hassle having to transfer me over it probably won't do me any good.

Am I overthinking it all?

Yes. Course swaps between 3/4 year courses, (integrated masters, placement years, study abroad etc), are very common. Unis don’t care. They’ll just tell you whether it’s possible to switch or not - it usually is.
