    Hi TSR!

    I’m Laurence. I recently graduated university and I’m now working on higher education policy at BIS. Part of my job involves working out how we can make life better for students. One way we’re doing this is by thinking about how we can make switching courses (and unis themselves) easier. I’m running a formal survey, so I’d like to ask you for *your* views.

    Have you thought about switching course or uni, and what were the main reasons for wanting to make the switch?

    If you have switched course or uni, how easy did you find the whole process?

    I’d love to hear your views (and if you’d rather share them in a less public way you can respond to the survey at https://bisgovuk.citizenspace.com/he...and-switching/).

    Any information you can give will be really helpful.

    Thanks
    Laurence

    Hi Laurence

    There's 2,000+ posts about transferring university here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1781424

    Including problems that students come up against (even simple things like the fact that the UCAS application is unsuited to capture previous university study) and examples of student experiences.
