    Hi,

    I'm currently in my 1st year, but want to transfer to a 'brick' uni to do my second. I'm currently with the open uni and i've never even been to a lecture or written an essay! It's more frequent assignments with several shorter questions.

    I am still only 20, and did have a place at uni last year but decided i wasn't ready yet and instead of just working, I am doing first year with them alongside my job.

    I've been thinking though, would I really struggle jumping straight into second year? And what if things are taught slightly differently, and will i still make friends, will I be able to settle in as well or would it be better to just write this year off and start 1st year all over again?

    I don't think it's a case of even being able to 'jump into second year' most unis require prerequisite courses to study second year, as they lay down the foundation in first year. Each uni teaches a slightly different syllabus, so you may not have learnt what you need for second year.

    You would probably only be able to apply for first year entry to most universities.

    From what I've gathered, transferring into the second year of a course is only really possible if you have a good reason for doing so. For example, personal or financial reasons.

    If you have time you could try to attend open days and ask admissions professors directly. Always easier to find out in person.
