    Hello,

    Has anyone tried to use the request course change feature on the St Andrews portal? I'm considering changing my course but don't know if I'll have much luck doing it that way.

    Thanks,

    Course changes need to be approved - I don't know if you can request a course change through the portal if you are a new student. Regardless, I suggest you either phone the university and discuss the issue with someone relevant, or, failing that, ask your advisor about it in freshers' week.

    It's also worth adding that you'll need to take at least a semester (usually a year) of the subject you were accepted for. You'll also need your advisor's approval too.

    Well I did. Changed form French-Spanish with managment to Maths MA. They barely changed the offer, so I say go for it, unless it's a popular course..

    What's the link for requesting course change? I've been meaning to speak to my advisor about it, but I might request it online instead?

    Returning students can do it where their module choices are on the advising bit of the portal - I think. I don't want to click the bit saying 'request course change' in case I suddenly end up studying Spanish
