I'm currently at QM and wondering if UCL accept transfers? Is there anyone on this board who has done this in the past? (Transfer from UoL to UCL)

Forgot to add that I'll appreciate the help of those that have done this. Thanks.

I'm sure if they have space they do.

From my own experience last year I was a fresher at a different university and wanted to transfer to UCL. By email conversation I was told by the head of the department (for what I wanted to do at the time) he didn't have space for that year but would give me an unconditional for the following year if I applied by UCAS.

My advice would be to email the head of the department you want to transfer to and explain your situation, you'll get the best answer that way!

I plan to transfer from Warwick to UCL 2nd year for civil engineering as well. ChemEng90, are you jst about to start 1st year at QM or you're in 2nd year? it's good to know there's people in the same situtation.

And thepinkpowerranger, which department are you studying now at UCL? Did you have to start from 1st year again or continue with 2nd/3rd year? I was told that the chances of 2nd year transfer is really slim, and i MIGHT have to start 1st year civil engineering at UCL if i were to transfer.

One of my friends asked the computer science dept admin tutor abt transfer from QM to UCL. He replied him stating that there are 3 main conditions:

1) You will have to meet their new/current A-Level entry requirement for the new intake.
2) The first year materials must cover the same materials as of UCL's with good grades.
3) The whole 2nd year cohort must have a vacancy if you were to transfer.

And that is why very few applicants are able to do so. I have already met the 1st condition for civil engr entry req. I just hope my current uni will have the same materials as UCL's. ):

i wanted to transfer from my university but was told the course was too full for a second year transfer, and the UCAS deadline had past for an application into their first year. Likely for me, a very similar course was available through UCAS Extra and my application for that got accepted.

So i think it depends on the availability and numbers of the course.

That said, you should obviously meet the course requirements and achieve a 2.1 or higher if you wish to transfer into the second year.

Hi i'm planning to transfer from warwick to ucl too and I'm a second year student. I don't know where to start and how it's going to work to be honest. I know you posted this in 2009 but i was wondering what you ended up doing. If you replied it'd be very helpful.

Hi! I have a question when you first email them do you need to write a super long email saying you current uni, degree but also your reasons for transferring and you grades from your first year? I really need a bit of help and I would appreciate it thank you

Im doing mechanical engineering at ucl im in my last year. UCL does not do transfers. You can only transfer if someone drops out in the 1st year and even then most courses are over packed. Also you would have to resit your A levels to get the required grades along with that you would have to do your first year exams at your uni..
