    It's very late in the academic year to transfer and there could be issues with subject availability and compatibility of examiners for the subjects he has chosen. BUT a transfer is possible at any time IF the closer college has space in the relevant courses and they believe he can catch up with any differences in what has been studied (without being a burden on the staff that adversely affects the other students). The only way to find out is to contact them and discuss it.
