Probably depends on how similar said course is, but I know they do accept transfers. Friend of mine transferred after a foundation year to do EEE.

Hi
I just read that your friend transferred to the University of Manchester.
What university did your friend transfer from?
Which foundation course did they do and at what uni?

No, she was given an offer based on her performance during the Foundation Year (70% in her case; this varies per case)

You do as part of that need to have somewhat comparable grades if they're just in the wrong subjects. Not exactly equal, but you can't apply to something like Durham for an A*AA course if you got BBB or something, I think.

Could be wrong on the last point actually, that's just the advice I was given by my tutor since I'm going through this atm myself hahah

No worries, hope it goes well for you ☺️

The statement sucks, I feel you there 😭 Like I've written dozens in my time (am very indecisive) but it still feels stupid hard every time ;-;

I think most places will be happy to accept transfers..... if they have the space for it. Obviously the competitive course (medicine, and business/finance classes) will be fully subscribed so no chance of transfering no matter the university. So no matter how similar the course is (even identical), it is completely dependent on whether the university thinks there is space for you.

Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (924)
42.74%
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (411)
