    I finished my first year at a met uni in my city and then I transferred to the RG of my city (16th on the leagues), they asked me to start from first year again because the modules weren't similar enough, and I have totally regretted moving to this uni.

    The lecturers are shxt, they can't explain anything to save their lives, the course content is mind-numbingly boring, the course materials are more unstructured than the uni I was at before, and again its boring AF, even next years options... I much preferred the options for year 2 in my old uni than this one.

    Only reason I really moved is because people are telling me how if you go to a mussel group that you're in a good place to get into graduate programs etc and get a job (apparently employers like it), but now i am hearing that doesn't really count for all RG's, just the top 5 ones like oxbride/imperial/UCL/bristol etc, unless its one of them it don't make much of a difference and its the grade that is more important? Which I think I would do better at my old uni than my current one, just really not feeling it.

    I called up my old unis admissions and they said they'd have to ask the faculty and get back to me

    Is there a point? Seems a bit strange for them to tell you now when you are so far along. They are asked you to start first year when you began or now? o where you will be happy. You will be paying for it anyway.

    I finished my first year at Uni1, and i asked Uni2 for transfer, they said yes but you will have to start from year1 because the modules at Uni2 are not similar enough to the modules at Uni1, so I am completong my first year at Uni2 right now, but I want to go back to Uni1 and do my second and third year there

    make sense? haha

    Yeah I think I will be more happy at my old uni, I just am not sure what the status quo is in regards to dropping out to transfer and then asking them if they'd take me back (I totally completed my first year I didn't drop out midway or anything I dropped out when I began the course at Uni2)
