    Hi,

    I go to a University already (First year) and I'm not finding this uni is for me (various reasons). I was wondering can I apply on UCAS to go to another one in september, or do I need to drop out of my present one before I apply?

    Ok great, so do you know what happens if the uni I'm applying for rejects me, do I have the option to just continue with my current uni?
    Also do you know if universities favour/dislike applicants who already have the a level grades?
    sorry for all the questions!

    yes you can reapply, i did this time last year

    as for a level results, it doesn't really matter, you'll just get unconditional offers and can't pick an insurance. You can continue at your existing course as long as you don't drop out of it! I just stopped turning up but i was still officially on the list so if i'd have been rejected, i could have just done semester 2's resits and carried on

    Dont just apply via ucas straight away, email the unis you're interested in first to see if there would be room for you in second year.

    Tell them your grades/ucas points, and say why you arent happy where you are (I am doing the same thing, and I just put "personal reasons"). Then they will either say yes or no, if there is room or not, and then apply via ucas.

    The deadline is a lot more flexible than first year application, I am applying to Lancaster and possibly Lboro, and they have both told me that if I get my ucas form to them by mid-feb then I will be fine.

    Good luck! x

    thanks for the info

    I think that I'm going to apply to go to first year though, since I'm applying to a city uni, not a campus one, I think I'd prefer being in halls for the first year. I also want to quit my current uni asap. But if this plan fails I'll do as you say and ask them about applying for a place in second year.

    It depends on the university and courses in question

    Generally if you meet the entry requirements for the course you want to switch to it should theoretically be easy enough. At my uni you contact your adviser of studies and complete an internal transfer form. If this is done before the UCAS deadline (next friday) you are considered equally to any UCAS applicant.

    As long as the new department agrees to accept you. If you are externally funded, the LEA will need to be informed. The policy will vary depending on the University. At my own, someone wanted to switch from History to Theology at the end of the first year. This was granted and they did not have to repeat the year. They had performed well in their first year and also had RS A-level. A more drastic swap would be more difficult, especially without relevent prior knowledge.
