    Hi there, basically the course I am on at the moment is abysmal (Partly due to the Uni though) so I need to choose a different University.

    I want to know how I go about applying for a new University, I got onto my current course via UCAS so how would I need to go about applying for next year? I have the requirements and of course don't have to wait for results so what should I do?

    Thanks in advance.

    Would you have to make a new UCAS? Or can you use your existing one?

    You have to go through UCAS again unfortunately (I've just gone through exactly the same thing). However if it's for September entry you would have to check with each uni you want to apply for whether they are still taking applications for the course and whether they have vacancies (only do this once you've set up the whole ucas thing and got the reference uploaded as info can change quickly) If they say yes then submit it straight away and if they like your ps you would get an unconditional.

    Unfortunately if they say no then unfortunately the only other option would be clearing or waiting a year =/. However if the uni and course aren't "in demand" then it's unlikely they will say no...

    Also whilst you're making the application another way of checking what courses have vacancies for reference is to do a course search on Ucas and any marked with an X are open through Extra which normally means they take late applications.

    Hope this helps and good luck

    When you go to make a new one when it asks for your details it recognises them and fills in things from your last application. You get a new personal ID to apply with but when it comes to track its your old personal ID and new username. Very confusing lol!

    Thanks for being so helpful! Do you know how lenient they are with course content? If I wanted to change from Computing to Comp Sci for example?

    Hmm I don't fully get what you mean... If you're applying again then the courses don't have to even be the same, I'm leaving law and have a place on nursing... However my boyfriend is going from computing to forensic computing and his ps is about what he's learnt etc etc so they would be pretty lenient I think. That all depends on the uni and you would have to speak to the admissions tutor

    However if you're transferring then that's done separately to UCAS as far as I'm aware (but no many unis allow it and I think it has to be the same/same ish course although I'm not entirely sure tbh)
