    Hi, I'm a first year Psychology student at Durham University. I am looking to transfer into second year to study Psychology at UCL or Warwick . I have called and emailed both universities, both have told me that theres nothing that can be done. Nobody was willing to hear me out or tell me my options. I have recently been going through personal issues, circumstances have arisen which require me to be closer to home however, I do not want to go into first year again at a new university, especially since I took a gap year, this would be a waste of time and money. Could somebody provide me with any advice? Is there any way my university could push for a transfer? Thank you.

    You might find some help in this thread, but in all honesty, if both universities have turned you down, there is nothing we can do on here.

    If the First Year cohort at the other Unis are full, there will be no spare places going into their Year 2 in 2015.

    And no amount of foot stamping will change that.

    PS. Remember you have 4 years of SF. You could therefore start in Year 1 at another Uni.
