Just out of curiosity, how easy/hard is it to change to a different Tripos after the first year if you don't like your course?

fairly easy i think - not really that sure though. I know it is much easier to change tripos than it is to change courses here.

Nigh on impossible I would think. That is main reason why you are interviewed, to assess your commitment to your subject

reasonably easy, as long as you get a decent mark (2.i) and aren't moving to a course which is too popular.

Relatively easy, isn't it? We've just had a girl transfer from NatSci to Medicine, and there's a girl on the staircase next to me who's just gone from English to Law. Depends on college and course, I should think.

So whats their final degree in then? Would it be joint honours english/law for example?

In theory fairly easy, but if you apply with no intention of studying the applied for subject they will probably suss you out. A friend switched from History to Arch and Anth and the History dept were horrible about it. Depends on course and college.

Does anyone know if, when you decide you want to change courses, you have to go through the same kind of interview 'admissions' process as prospective undergraduates, or if you can just tell your tutor you want to change and give reasons.

Also, what happens if you start off doing a course that has a 2 year Part 1? Can you just swap after your first year and thus start Part 2 of your second course, or do you first have to complete both years of the Part 1 first ie spend 4 years at uni?

Considering she's only been here about 5 weeks (yes folks, 5th week is over!) I should think she'll graduate in Law in the end, and this start be forgotten.
