I am currently a government department international student at the University of Essex and, having just completed a humanities foundation year, am now entering into my first year. I have tier 4 visa which obliges me contractually to finish 2 more years (3 including this one) of my course at the University of Essex, but I want to change courses. After having finally gotten myself to the appropriate maths level (by finishing an online course in Calculus and working on maths problems in my free time), I now wish to transfer to another university and to a course in physics (since Essex does not provide physics as an option). I scored high upper first classes and distinctions in my foundation year, but because I have such a poor academic background, having graduated with a meager american diploma with all A's and B's, I imagine I will have to take another foundation year in order to make such a transfer. I was wondering what options were available to me, and whether what I am wishing to do is even possible. Thank you
Has yours come through yet?
