    I am a Scottiish student (only mentioning because our degrees are 4 years rather than 3) just about to finish my first year studying Politics and International relations.

    However, I have not really enjoyed this course and after doing a lot of research I am now pretty set on the idea of studying law. I have just fired of an email to my personal tutor but I'm sure it will be ages to get a reply.

    What I want to know is do you think it would be at all possible to go straight into second year law or would I have to reapply through UCAS? I really don't want this to have been a wasted year. And even it this was possible any law students think this would work or would it simply be too hard without studying first year?

    Thanks a lot.

    No, it would not be possible. You would have to start again, from the 1st year. I am not sure if you have to re-apply through UCAS. You should visit student experience office (or similar) and ask about your options - there is a deadline for programme transfers...
