    I have top grade in Year 1 Computer Science course and i wanted to transfer from Edinburgh University to Northumbria University because of family reason and also finance issue.

    In Scotland unvieristy , you are required to do four year course or three year for
    advance students (usally student with AAA at A-level) while i only gotten AAC) so i'd entered the First Year. I have done some research on Northumbria Unviersty and their requirement is a bit lower and it's a three year course. Their first year is vey smilar to what i have done in my first year in Edinburgh Univeristy, such as computer programming concepts and languages, building online application,discrete mathematics,etc.

    I heard many people say it's not possible but once again the First Year in
    Scotland for computer science is very similar to the First year in England. I wouldn't say it's the same as Foundation Year in England because in Northumbria Foundation Year (4 year course) doesn't teach you he main concept of Computer and programing language whereas the first year in Scotland does.

    Anyway, i just wondering if it possible for me to transfer univeristy from Scotland to a England University so that i will only need to do 2 years in England and not 3 more years in Scotland.

    Have this ever happen to anyone?

    Whether anyone else has managed this is irrelevant. All that matters is whether you can do so. And the only people with an opinion that really matters on this issue work at Northumbria University. Ask them.

    Courses in Scotland are 4 years because most students start university a year earlier than in England. Year 1 in Scotland is not equivalent to Year 1 in England. It's more equivalent to a Foundation Year in England. You are effectively trying to skip a full year, which is highly unlikely to be acceptable.

    But ageshallnot's advice is, as always, the only correct approach.

    Also what happened to Herriot Watt?

    And re your finance point, don't forget tuition fees are higher in England than Scotland.
