    This has been bothering me for a while now. Is this move against UCAS rules?

    To accept an offer while not having withdrawn, with the intention of withdrawing before the new university registration period.

    Why accept the offer if you have no intention of going? :confused:

    It's a funny way about going with things. I've been told there's no problem applying to UCAS while at university and receiving offers, but to accept an offer while still at university is a little more confusing.

    Just don't want it to be one of those situation where UCAS or something pull me up in the future and say:

    "Oi. You cheated the system. We're taking back your degree classification"

    Leicester. Well... sort of. Doing psychology now.

    I'm starting to understand why someone said that I had screwed up by going through UCAS again rather than transferring.

    I thought that you already were at University of Leicester and had gone from Geophysics -> Psychology? :o:

    No. Clearly it would be courteous to your current uni to tell them as soon as possible that you will be withdrawing at the end of the year, but you don't have to have done that in order to accept an offer.

    Yep. That's what I did. You've got pretty good memory Elements!
    I don't actually ever remember specifically telling you, then again I did make a boat load of threads about it. :o:

    Thank you Minerva. That's what I got my university to do before starting the new course.

    I wasn't sure about how much power UCAS had to affect me now that I have arrived at university. I'm assuming now that all problems are dealt with by my local university rather than UCAS.

    tbh I panicked about it a bit but I'm at my new uni now, my money has gone in and you're entitled to 4 years funding in case you mess up so there's nothing wrong with it, others on my course have done the same.
