    This would be a good question to ask yiur university..

    But yeah, I think it's possible to switch anytime until end of second year for most places - and for those on the BEng there's usually a criteria of getting, say, above 60% (or some grade) in order to switch.

    Funnily enough, I'm asking about changing now due to the complications it can cause later during internships

    If you intend to do the MEng then you might as well switch as soon as possible as to try to get student finance issues sorted out sooner rather than later.

    I've heard that if you make the switch to Meng the offer an internship or full time job offer gets revoked due to the course adding a year

    Well, you could just reapply.. It's not the end of the world if you do 2 internships.

    Extremely unlikely, maybe for a full time job offer but I'm sure they'd rather have a Master's qualified engineer and most companies would be fine with it.
