Transferring programme

The below information applies to all awards.

It may be possible for you to transfer to a new programme, or change from full time to part time. However, any transfer will be subject to academic approval and availability of places.

You can request to transfer within the same academic year up to 14 calendar days after the start of the teaching period, for example:

Programme start date Internal transfer deadline
September 2018 7 October 2018
January 2019 3 February 2019

You can still submit a transfer request after these deadlines. If approved, it will not take effect until the next academic year.

If your programme does not start in September or January you should contact an Information Point to find out what the deadline will be.

You must contact your funding body to check your financial support entitlement for your new programme. If your transfer increases the number of years it will take to complete your programme, you may be without fee support for one of your years of study. Please read the transferring awards information.

If you are an international student, you should be aware that making a change to your course may have implications on your immigration status and the completion of your studies. Please contact the Immigration and Student Visa Support Service if you would like to discuss any issues.
