Changing university firm choice due to personal circumstances, is it possible?
Hi, my son has chosen Leicester as his firm choice on his UCAS form but circumstances have changed and would rather have his second choice Northumbria to be near family if he needs to get home quicker. Is this possible?
He should speak to Northumbria first and ask if they would agree to the alteration. This is all possible within UCAS providing that Northumbria have places available. Leicester will release him when asked, and will not object, especially due to the personal circumstances.
