    Its a crazy question and probably imposible, but i'll risk asking: is it posible to transfer from MBS to Biomedical sciences?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    It's possible but kind of unusual, most people who change courses tend to switch to something fairly similar. How do the entry requirements for Biomedical Sciences compare to your offer for MBS? And have you done the right A-level subjects?

    In any case, the best thing to do is just to contact the Life Sciences admission office and see what they say.

    I have all the needed subjects, since i knew i would never be sure what to study..:| i start thinking more and more that maybe i made a mistake by choosing management as it is not so 'demanded' , biomedical sciences or genetics would be more perspective..? I am not sure if i made myself clear, sorry if not
    Although i think that management related job would be more appealing to me but the look everyone gives me when i say what i'm planning to study... Ugggh, so much pressure!

    It will definitely help that you meet the entry requirements, all you can do is contact them and see what they say. The sooner you ask, the more likely you'll be able to transfer.

    Ranking Questions:
    I've applied for Aerospace Engineering. Pls help!
    Manchester has a better ranking in the QS and USNEWS websites but only an average ranking in the Guardian,The Complete University Guide lists.
    However, Bath and Southampton have very good rankings in the Guardian and the CUG lists but a poor ranking in the QS list.
    Sheffield is average in both.
    Can someone explain? Are the rankings related to how old the universities are?
    Which list do I trust?
    "At a recent ranking undertaken by the Guardian, Manchester is placed 5th in the UK in international reputation behind the usual four: Oxbridge, UCL and Imperial.[107] Furthermore, according to the latest QS World University Rankings, Manchester is ranked 4th in Europe strictly in terms of both academic and employer reputation.[108] However, while as a rule world rankings (such as the ARWU, THES and HEEACT[109]) typically place the university within the top 10 in Europe, national studies are less complimentary; The Times 'Good University Guide 2011'[110] ranked Manchester 30th out of 113 Universities in the UK, 'The Complete University Guide 2012' in association with The Independent placed it at 29th out of 116 universities[111]whilst 'The Guardian University Guide 2012' ranked Manchester at 41st out of 119 universities in the UK.[112] This apparent paradox is mainly a reflection of the different ranking methodologies employed by each listing: global rankings focus on research and international prestige, whereas national rankings are largely based on teaching and the student experience."

    It will vary from year to year and from applicant to applicant. If you miss your offer, their decision will be based on things like how many places they have left and the quality of the rest of your application. It's difficult to predict that sort of thing.

    I've seen people post leaflets from their courses saying the 14th, but yeah I guess it would be nice to know an actual date with all the confusion!

    That's strange, I haven't seen the 14th mentioned anywhere. You should always go by what your course officially tells you but I'm 95% sure it's the 21st.

    That sounds about right to me.

    Orientation is only for international students, by the way. If you're a home student, you don't have to be there until the 21st.

    No, orientation is almost entirely geared towards international students. Welcome Week, however, is for everyone.

    Who told you you'd need to provide certificates during orientation? The majority of UK students don't even arrive until the Saturday or Sunday so I doubt any courses require them this early. Most courses don't even ask for them in my experience, and even if they do, it will usually be a few weeks into the semester.
