    It may be possible, if you're looking at going straight into second year on the course you're currently studying. If you wanted to restart from first year, you may find the course you're interested in is currently filled for September.

    The best first step is to approach the university you're interested in and ask about the possibility of transferring. Not every uni accepts transfer students, and if you're able to transfer may depend on how similar the courses are between unis.

    If the uni is provisionally happy to accept you as a year 2 transfer student, you'd then usually need to apply via UCAS. The uni would expect a referee from your current uni, for example your personal tutor. You may be offered a place that's conditional on getting certain marks in your first year.
