    Does anybody know how you go about changing courses? I've completed my first year of university. But I'm now wanting to switch

    Depends if the course is related to the one you're changing too, if not then you may have to start 1st year again

    That's what I'm doing

    What did you have to do in order to start another course? Is it relatively painless?

    Hi all, hope you're well!

    The first step would be to contact our Academic Records team (email [email protected] or call 01695 657 600). They'll let you know if a transfer is possible and advise you on your next step. Transferring requires approval from both your current and new programme leader/head of department, so if you can transfer, you'll be given a form for these people to sign. Return this to the Academic Records team, and they'll let you know when the transfer has been successful.

    The main hurdle is finding out whether the transfer is successful - after this, as long as you can get the appropriate permissions, it shouldn't be too bad!
