    I've transferred from the University of Bedfordshire to the University of Northampton for the second year of my Psychology and Criminology degree and I went into enrolment today and it turns out they haven't even made up their minds yet as to whether I can actually begin my second year. They said I could temporarily enroll as a first year until I got a confirmation as to whether or not they decide I can do second year and I decided to do that so that it would be out of the way when they finally do make up their minds. I wasn't aware they hadn't made a decision when I confirmed that I wanted to go there, I had communicated to them what modules I had done last year during the application process and I don't understand why it has been taking them so long. I'm worried that I may have done the wrong thing by enrolling as a first year in case it causes me trouble in the event that I try another transfer in the event that another uni would accept me as a second year.

    What confirmation did you receive from the uni when you applied for a transfer?

    You should review everything they've sent you as safety measure - make sure you print out anything that mentions moving into second year and take straight to your faculty.

    It is worth remembering to speak to Student Finance too asap once you know whats happening

    As above - do you have an email telling you that you have a definite place, or have you just assumed that you have?
