Hey,
I did a lot of emailing around, back when I was trying to figure out what unis to apply for. I want to do something along the lines of Wildlife Conservation. Uni of Kent have said, because I dont have a science background in A level, they can put me on to the enviornmental studies course ( which i have a conditional offer for) then in the second year if I do well anough in the science topics I can move onto wildlfie conservation in year 2.
Anyone have any idea if this happens very often and if it seems to be likely or unlikely to happen.
Alsooo, how does the whole transferring process work??
Thanks in advance!

Hi,

If you were advised that that is a possibility by the department, it means it is common practice for them to do. As far as how likely it is, it really depends on how hard you work in your first year to catch up with the science elements. If you are getting good grades in your science courses you will be able to step over to the wildlife conservation course.

As far as the transfer process goes, because there are quite a few parallels between the two courses, it would simply be a matter of you being registered on wildlife conservation for your second year, and having a different selection of modules than you would have had in environmental studies.

good luck,

Aaron
Recruitment officer

Ok, thanks for the reply!
Also is there a limit to how many people can actually transfer to wildife conservation, like is it a first come first serve basis?

Hi Hjose,

It would all depend on how close Wildlife conservation was to capacity that year. For a first hand account you would need to contact the department to ask, but I can't imagine it would be an issue if they told you you'd be able to.

good luck,

Aaron
