To ensure the quality of student experience, we have a target quota for each of our degree courses and winning a place on these degree courses is very competitive. It is possible to change degree programmes, but there is no automatic right to do so. The factors that we take into account are academic merit as well as availability of places on particular programmes. If you wish to change one or more modules, or even the degree programme you are studying within or across departments, you must seek advice from the department(s) concerned at the earliest opportunity. Although we do our best to help students who wish to change module(s) or programme, it becomes progressively more difficult to change as time goes on, because of the amount of work which you will have missed. You will also normally need to satisfy any pre-requisites for the module(s) or programme to which you wish to change. If you are permitted to change modules or programme it is your responsibility to catch up the work which you have missed. The factors that we take into account are academic merit as well as availability of places on particular programmes.
