Has anyone here transferred from the UOL programme to the physical Uni?

    I'll be studying the Economics course led by LSE and was hoping I might transfer into the second year, if I'm lucky enough to do well.
    It's encouraged on their website but I don't see any stories of people actually doing this anywhere.

    What is your question? If it's encouraged on the website it's possible so what are you wanting people to tell you?

    Good question best to check with LSE directly. I personally doubt this is possible.
    LSE requires an A* in Math( A levels) for BSc economics.
    UOL seems to require a C in GCSE math. The difference in the math levels required is huge. The BSc in economics at LSE is highly mathematical .
    I don't think the courses are equivalent. I have never heard of anyone transferring to LSE BSc Economics including Oxbridge. Check with LSE.

    I was a bit vague, yeah... But I honestly just wanted to know if it ever really happened. UOL is so easy to get into compared to LSE. And they say there are only about 1500 spaces available each year. It's a bit harder studying independently of course, but it still seems to be too good to be true that you could go from getting average grades at A-levels to studying at LSE. I just hoped to find one student who had managed it.

    Thanks so much for the detailed reply! I have asked LSE but they're taking a while to get back to me - busy time of year, I guess.
    Yes, I suppose the only people who might be considered for acceptance would be those who got the required grades at A-level /and/ took a year at UOL...
    Ah well.
    Thanks, again, for replying.
