I have recently arrived at the University of Glasgow to study German and Business because I was incorrectly told by my school that Queens were not offering that degree. Upon later research I discovered that Queens did actually run the German and Business course and so obviously now I would like to transfer to Queens as it is where I am from. However when I queried them about the opportunity to transfer (I achieved the grade requirements in my A-level) they said it was against university policy to allow transfers. Surely every university allows some form of a transfer? I only ask this question because I am so desperate to go and study at home and am completely heartbroken that they are not offering transfers. Any answers would be appreciated and if they are quick then that is even better as I need to decide whether to continue on being unhappy at my current university or take a year out!
*Additional information: They said I could be deferred to 2017 and study then however as I am studying a language I would really rather to begin Uni this year as I am ready for it and am not keen on taking a year out. They also said that a lot of the courses were over subscribed however given the fact that very few schools do German at A-level and the fact that I was the only student in my A-level class I just dont understand how it could be oversubscribed*
And actually passed?
