Changing your Major
Lancaster’s three-subject Part I scheme is designed to give you as much flexibility as possible with your degree programme.
You may change your intended major subject at Part II enrolment (in May) to any major for which your Part I subjects qualify you (all changes are, however, reliant on you achieving a majorable mark, i.e. an aggregate score of 10.3 (with a score of 9 or above in all components) in any subject you wish to take as a major).
There is also some flexibility within Part II, as you are still permitted to change your major (Part I subjects and results permitting) at any time before the start of your second year.
If you decide to change your major before Part II enrolment in May you need to discuss this with the department(s) involved and then enrol in the normal way.
If you decide after you have enrolled for Part II courses (for example, on receipt of examination results) then you should contact Department as soon as possible (and by the end of July at the latest) after you receive your results.
