I wonder if you could kindly advice me. Is it possible to transfer from one medical school (uk) to another medical school (uk)? Would there be an issue with funding? I would like to transfer as my grandmother is ill so perfer to be closer to home and the medical school I am at are very unfair towards me.
At the moment I am a thrid year student

Outside of the Oxbridge/St Andrews clinical transfers, this happens very, very rarely, and would depend on which school you wanted to transfer from and to and your reasons for doing so. It sounds very callous of me, but lots of students have sick grandparents (both mine deteriorated and died during the course of my degree) and unless you're their main carer and the rest of your family/social services can't cope without you, I'm not sure how much consideration you'd get. It can't hurt to ask though.

There is no harm in trying but it's rare for transfers to take place especially after third year. I don't know if any school would take you after you have done 1st year of clinics.
