    hi everyone!

    I am currently a first year student at City University studying BSc (Hons) Management and in terms of grades I am on a 2:1 at the moment. Anyway I am not very happy with my uni but i was wondering if it was too late to change it now in order for a September 2016 start at Southampton university. Money is not an issue as i lived at home so I have saved my maintenance money and i understand that you can receive funding for 4 years. Also i should hopefully receive accomodation if i apply before 1 August and the website says it is guaranteed for first year students which i would be. I have previously applied through UCAS and know the deadline is sometime in January which was a while ago so would the course be full (i want to apply for the same course i am currently studying). I understand that this is a very competitive university which hinders my chances also. My A-level grades were ABB which is slightly lower than what they were asking for, however their website says that if i have credit through prior learning then i may be eligible to use this also. I am not sure how to go about this. Would my current university assist me with my application? Would i even stand a chance or just be better off sticking it out with my uni for another 2 years in the hope it gets better?
    Thanks!

    I suppose so, although by the time I do my masters I will be much older but I want to experience the uni life now which I don't feel like I've been getting now. I suppose the degree is more important. Thanks.
