    Hello all... I'm in a bit of a predicament and not really sure what to do. Any advice would be greatly greatly greatly appreciated.

    I'm currently a student at Lancaster University, studying Design. I quite enjoy the course, however, I'm not crazy fond of the place itself. It's quite small, with not that much going on.

    I'm thinking about switching Universities, but starting on the 2nd year of the course. I'm going to fill out a UCAS application but choose 2nd year instead of 1st, although I'm not even sure it's necessary to do this if you're applying for second year.

    Anyone got any thoughts/advice/opinions?

    Thanks

    contact the universities you're interested in and ask if they accept transfers into 2nd year before you do anything else.
