    Now, tchaikovskyed, I believe you requested something for the previous thread ... this is the best I can come up with:

    And now, we say farewell to thee,
    But new horizons rise with the dawn.
    We bid thee farewell, farewell,
    as new light shines upon us all.

    I am an international student who was rejected by a Oxford (post interview) but accepted by KCL/Durham/UCL.

    1. Is it possible to reapply next year, while studying at another Uni (no gap year)?

    2. Do U.K. schools have transfers or do you apply to start the whole degree again?

    3. Is there anything different in reapplying as a uni student (like a higher standard)?

    Numero tres: Not sure, but from the page in numero uno, it sounds like your study at the other uni would be considered.

    Now, I must ask y'all to be relatively civil. Screaming is allowed, but no name calling unless it's in the backyard.

    Now that your question is answered, I suppose the real question is: would it be worth starting your undergraduate studies again and effectively lose 6 months of education and adding on a new year? Why not use that extra year you keep by not reapplying to apply for an MSt/MSc/MPhil at Oxford in your third year of study? Particularly if your university is in the top 10? But then, that's something only you can decide whilst considering the finances of it.

    I think you bring up a very good point, but I think Oxford is at least worth a second shot.
    I am from the US where degrees are already four years, so the 'lost' year isn't very lost. Also as great as the three schools are, none are very known by Americans.

    Do you know if they want a reference from your HS teacher or a uni professor? It seems impossible for a professor to write a recommendation after only one or two months of knowing you...

    I have to say, when I was living in the US, all I knew about here in the UK were Oxford and Cambridge.

    Fair. Just something to consider I suppose as some people re-apply for the heck of it and to be fair there's nothing to lose save 24 pounds for UCAS, some dignity and the expense of a Skype call/train journey.
    The 'known-ness' of a uni shouldn't matter so much unless you're going to be immediately applying for top end jobs afterwards in the US. But yes, I get the concern.

    They want a reference from a professor and a statement of 'release'. I would say however it's probably more advantageous to get a reference from high school teacher (who would know you far better) and submit the UCAS app as normal without much if any reference to undergrad.

    I think you should be able to. Are there any links in your email? I had some myself.
