Hello,

I got accepted into the University of Edinburgh last year (this year is my first year at university) but could not go due to financial reasons and so I had to go to a university in Canada.

Because of the pound dropping, there is a very small difference between my universities and my parents are also willing to pay the small difference now so I was wondering what are my chances in getting accepted as a transfer student in the second year.

Would the fact that I didn't go when I first got offered affect a second application and would there be in an issue between the different academic systems?

Thank you

The fact that you didn't go previously will have no effect on your application. The different academic system will be a factor. You need to have studied similar topics in your first year in Canada to the syllabus at Edinburgh, which is unlikely. The only thing you can do is contact the uni directly and see what they say.
