    To cut a long story short, I've been at St Andrews for two and a half years, but am still in subhonours, having changed my degree at the end of my first year. I'm not entirely happy with the course I'm doing, and have been thinking about transfering to either Edinburgh, Glasgow or Aberdeen, because there are courses there that I think I'd prefer.

    Has anybody had experience of doing anything like this? It appears that transfering involves going through UCAS again, and I've missed the UCAS deadline now. If you've transfered, what was the process like, and would you say that it was worth the hassle?

    Oh right... thanks! Even still, I won't get all the paperwork and stuff organised in time for that.

    Maybe it's best just to phone up the actual uni's and discuss it with them? I've heard vague stories from friends about people they know who have transferred and didn't have to go through UCAS.

    No, you wouldn't go through UCAS.

    Talk to your Director of Studies/Academic Advisor or whatever. They'll communicate with the admissions people at the other university on your behalf. They'll probably do some messing around with 'credits' and things for the classes you've taken and hopefully sort it out with minimal fuss.
