    I'm doing a 4 year Spanish studies degree at Essex but want to do my 4th year as Hispanic studies at Liverpool. On Liverpool's website they say they accept transfers as long as the student got 60% in their previous year.

    Has anyone else had any experience of changing uni for their final year? Am I right in thinking I'm better off applying to Liverpool and waiting to see if I get a definite place there before telling Essex?

    Best bet is to phone/email both the departments in Liverpool and Essex for an accurate answer.

    At York at least (I forget if its a pan-uni poicy) you can only graduate if at least 50% of the credits came from the university you want to graduate from. So I could transfer into the start of the 3rd year of a 4 year course, but no, it wouldnt have been possible to transfer into the final year of a course longer than 2 years.
