FAQs

Can I change Seminar group?

Places on courses cannot be allocated according to preference. You will need to remain in the group you have originally enrolled on. If you feel you have valid reasons to change to another group (carer responsibility, provisions registered with Disability Service etc), please contact your programme administrator.

The option I wish to take is full.  What can I do?

Once a course is full, you will not be able to enrol on it, as capacities are not flexible. You will need to select an alternative.

Further Support
