    Hi Student Room,

    I'm a first-year Adult Nursing student at Edinburgh Napier and I would like to move to Northumbria university to continue my studies. Before I email Northumbria Uni about this, have any other nursing students been able to move unis? If so, did you manage to move straight into year 2 or did you have to start again?

    Thank you all in advance!

    Not many universities accept transfers as university nursing programmes can differ greatly in placement times, class times and skills etc to be ticked off in portfolios. I contacted Northumbria last year about a transfer and they wouldn't accept it.
    You can email and ask but chances are they will probably say no. Especially as you are coming from Scotland to England. Although nursing is nursing, the way universities teach it and placement availability differs greatly. But it can't harm to get in touch and ask!
