University transfer - tuition fee and doabilityWatch
I have just started a course at Reading Uni. but due to personal reasons I will have to try to transfer my degree to one of the London-based unis next year.
Providing that transfer is successful what tuition fee will I need to pay - the new, £9000-ish one or the old one?
Is such transfer doable, is it common thing among students to change Uni? I would like to get to Imperial, UCL or QMUL... The first one might be out of my reach but it is worth trying anyway.
In the worst case I think that(as Juno wrote) it may vary from school to school. The question is whether they will define a transfer as a transfer or as a new application via UCAS with entry point 2(in which case, probably, a new fee is applicable).
Thanks for you thoughts and feel free to add more if you have something on your mind
Obviously I'd advise calling up SFE and also the Universities you're interested in for further clarification, but the general rule seems to be that transfers stay on the same fee regime, only new entrants to the system in September 2011 will be charged the higher fees.
