    I've applied to sheffield university and am set to go there 2013, however I was wondering if you're allowed to change universities for second year (without having to study first year again!) at a different university, possibly even cambridge?? and if so how!? :confused:

    I know this is a very uncommon move and cambridge and other top uni's are unlikely to even have the available places but I've heard of it happening and just wanted to find out more

    I'm only querying whether this is possible Not because I don't want to go to sheffield instead so I know whether there's the option to change to allow for the fact that I may not like the uni for whatever reason

    also I tried to find out online but there really isn't much if any information so please if you can! thanks

    It is possible to transfer into second year at some universities, but not Cambridge.

    (I believe you do this by getting permission directly from an admissions tutor at the new university by speaking to them, and then applying through UCAS, but I've never tried so this might not be true).

    no, they explicitly state that it's not possible. Same goes for Oxford
