    Hi - sorry if this has been done several times, but looking through past threads confused me and I thought it best to ask again.

    I was wondering if anyone could perhaps outline the process of transferring? I realise that you specify on your UCAS form which year of study you're applying to enter. If I applied to one university for 2008 entry, and now wanted to apply for a transfer to a different uni for 2010 entry (say into the second or third year of their program - I realise this in itself may be tricky, but for the sake of argument assume they've agreed to consider this for me), would I start a new UCAS application with new username etc from scratch, and then select university courses (specifiying a different year)?

    Sorry, I'm just completely clueless. Any help from anyone would really be appreciated!

    That's pretty much how it works, yes.

    Okay, so I should create a whole new UCAS profile, not just edit my previous one? And it would work just like an initial application - I could choose courses at 5 universities? If so, should I contact them first and ask if they'd consider me for a transfer?

    Sorry :o:

    If it's possible to apply for new courses using your original profile, you may as well use that I guess. In any case it will be just like before, you apply to 5 and they give you an offer or reject you.

    And yes, contact them first.

    Also, how would I enter into my application my two years spent studying at a different one? Just in my personal statement?
