    Is there any way to withdraw and do a different course at a different university? LSBU still has places available.

    My student loan letter only just came so I can always fill out the 'change of circumstances' form... Then give it to the new uni, right?

    I DEFINITELY want to change course. Help!

    And the reason LSBU still has places is because virtually no one wants to study there.

    Regardless of that, it's possible I presume? x

    It is, what uni are you in atm? If you want to go to LSBU just call them up and ask if there are places available for the course you want to study. If its the course you don't like, why don't you see whether your uni still have places available on other courses you might be interested in?

    I don't think you're supposed to take the 'change of circumstances' form to new uni, just sent if off to Student Finance so they know that you've changed course/uni.

    I wouldn't judge the course on just the first week to be honest. If the degree is going to give an end result that you want to reach then try it out for at least a couple months. The first week is rarely representative of what the whole year is going to be like.

    What is it about the course you don't like?

    yeah you can still change. Like what was already said, call the uni you want to change to and if they agree to take you. You will then need tell your uni so they can release you so LSBU can accept you. And you can do the change of circumstance through student finance online. :-D

    Seriously, why would you want to go to LSBU? You might as well get a degree from your local college.

    Most unis will let you transfer to another course with them providing you got the entrance requirements and they have places left. Easier to do this if you like the uni but just not the course. You might want to wait another week before you make up your mind though, as the first week can be the worst and certainly the most tedious, what with all the "getting to know you" crap and the welcome lectures.

    Yay awesome, can this be done without going into my current university, i.e. over the net/via post etc? How easy is it to be released from your current uni?

    The longer I wait, the harder it'll be to transfer though..?

    Hey, well I tranferred before the start of my degree so I contacted the uni I wanted to go to, and they said just call up my other uni and explain you want to be released into clearing, and my uni did it that day, then the uni I wanted to go to told me to add them on clearing so they could accept me. And it was all sorted.

    After that I went on student finance online and changed what uni I was going to on the website.
