    I think it is a bit late. Better to call them. They will never reply to a random email imo.

    Well, I think it has a lot to do with the uni & their general kind of procedure in response to similar situations, but also it'd depend on how competitive the two courses (your current course & your desired course) are relative to one another.

    I don't think the actual scheduling would be a problem, seeing as they'd have all of summer to move you.

    So the main issue would be whether or not you're qualified to be on the ICT course and whether or not you would've got onto the ICT course if you'd applied through UCAS.

    Well my current course is Automotive and Motorsport Engineering which is much more competitive and according to the University you need more points to get into, and the course i want to transfer to is ICT which only needs 240 UCAS Points compared to my current course which requires 280.
