    Changing courses is very common. If you are just finishing your first year then speak to your tutor or registry to find out how compatible the two courses are. If they aren't compatible then you may have to start again in the first year for the new course. Student finance wise this would be fine - everyone is entitled to an extra years funding to allow for false starts/repeat years. It would only cause a problem if you failed a year and needed to resit the entire year again on the new course.

    Like I said - it's possible but you'll need a level of compatibility. Only the university concerned will be able to tell you if the two courses are close enough to allow a transfer (either directly into yr 3 or to repeat year 2 on the new course using up your gift year).
