I want to change my degree course

Undergraduate students

This permission should be sought from the undergraduate studies committee via the undergraduate office.

What you can do:

If you wish to change your degree programme you must obtain a Change of Degree Course Application Form from the Student Services Centre, or from most Departmental Offices. You must then seek written approval from the Departmental Tutor of the department responsible for the degree you wish to follow and from the Departmental Tutor of the department responsible for the degree you wish to leave.

The Undergraduate Studies Subcommittee will consider your completed form when you have returned it to the Student Services Centre.

We will inform you in writing if approval has been given. Permission will depend on the number of students already registered for a particular degree, your own qualifications, how many of the courses that you have already taken fit into the regulations of the degree to which you wish to transfer, and the admission quota for each degree.
