    I've heard that some Universities allow students taking a degree in Biochemistry have the option to transfer over to study Medicine after the first or second year if they happen to do very well. Does anybody know anything more about this at all?

    Thanks very much.

    Oh and I don't mean completing the degree then doing graduate entry/accelerated course.

    Mid-degree transfers are very rare and shouldn't be relied on. But check with uni to see if it's possible.

    I don't know about other uni's but St. Georges have said they only take 1-2 a year, so I wouldn't bank on it.

    Because they got 4 rejections, and an offer on biomedical sciences and hope to transfer.

    Nah I'm not banking on anything I actually want to do a degree in biochemistry hence why all my 5 choices are for it, somebody just mentioned it to me the other day that people can transfer I just wanted to know if it was true.

    Interesting though thanks for the feedback.

    You should probably ask every single uni about this, it's different everywhere. I know Dundee don't let you do this anymore (it used to be allowed) because in the end too many people wanted to transfer to Medicine..
