    I'm in my 2nd year of University, I'm considering moving to a University in my hometown for my 3rd year, there are a fair few pros and cons to transferring. I have heard you can't transfer this late into a course, and I love the University and the city I study in, it'd just be really nice to be home with my family, I'd save money so can afford to learn to drive which'll make life much easier once I graduate, my parents are struggling to pay the rent so my contribution would help them out etc. What are your thoughts on all this? I don't even know where I'd start in looking to transfer if possible and if I decide it's what I want to do!

    Your should first email the Admissions Office of your target uni, to find out whether they will accept you. As the above poster has said, it would be rare to be able to do this as each uni can set its own syllabus and your second year contributes to your final degree grade.

    Also bear in mind that if you live at home, your Student Finance will be reduced. If your parents need you to contribute to the household finances, you might not end up with the spare money you think you will.
