After speaking with one of my university's student advisors, she suggested that my current university was below that which I could achieve. I know it sounds a bit arrogant of me to say this, but I figured if that was true then I should look into perhaps 'upgrading' to what is perceived to be a 'better' university.
My question, however, is this: can I continue my current course at another university next year? I.e. go from the first year at my current one to the 2nd year at the other in September.
It seems like an easy question, I know, as I'm pretty sure I can, but I can't find any information anywhere which categorically states this could be allowed, or if I have to complete the whole course at a single university to qualify for the degree.

You can transfer for second year entry to any university you like, providing they accept you. Contact the universities you're interested in transfering to and ask them about it - send details of your first year transcript including your module titles and grades.
Some universities will no longer accept your application as they only allow transfer applicants until the UCAS deadline to apply, meaning you've missed it as it was last month, but others are more flexible. Some will ask you to apply via UCAS whereas others will not - you need to contact them and ask about it. If you apply through UCAS you simply put the entry point as 2 for the courses and then apply like last year. You would however be applying as an individual applicant so would have to sort out your reference etc independetly.
