Changing university

I have recently just chosen my five university choices and accepted my firm and insurance choices. However, I now want to go somewhere completely different to any of the five I have chosen, any advice on what to do?

Contact the admissions team for the course/university you are interested in. Ask if they will still have places for 2017 entry and if they will consider your application. If they will, you can decline all your offers and accept the new offer through UCAS Extra. Alternatively, you might be asked to wait until Clearing in August.

It is best to get an idea now if they would be receptive to an application.

What you are proposing is possible, subject to the university agreeing.

Best of luck,
