Student Guide: Changing Awards

'Signature' graphic

If you are considering changing your award you will need to discuss this with your personal tutor and/or Course leader.  Although there is some flexibility for change within the award framework, there are also limitations. 

Your tutor will need to be sure that you have met, or will be able to meet, the learning outcomes of your new award before any decision to allow you to change is made.

Generally, the earlier you make the decision to change award, the easier it is.  By your third or final year, it is much more difficult to change direction.

For further advice and information on changing your award please follow the steps below

  • Log onto the e:VisionStaffs Portal, go to the 'My Course' section and under the 'Thinking of Leaving, changing your course or study mode or having a break from your course', click on the contact form and complete the details requested
  • If you have not already spoken to a Student Guidance Advisor, they will then contact you to discuss your request in more detail
