    Hey, I'm currently studying Civil engineering, as a first year student. However I've realised this isn't the route I want to be going in, as I am not great at Physics (Mechanics - Statics), and would prefer to study Mathematics as I hope to get into Machine Learning after Uni.

    Is it possible to transfer, in the same Uni or a different one, to second year of Mathematics as I don't want to restart University since I've already taken a gap year. Mind you, I am in Scotland so Uni is 4 years over here and second year for us still wouldn't count towards our degree. But since we are doing Maths for Engineers and Scientists in both semesters, would that be enough to change to a Mathematics degree?

    You will have to ask unis. In England you may struggle as the content may not be the same but if you are studying similar things it may be possible. Speak to your tutor first and then to unis you're interested in and go from there.

    Hi

    alleycat393 has offered some great advice. I would also advise that you contact the universities that you are interested in directly. You would need to complete and pass your first year at your current university and also the components of your current course would need to match the components of the course you're wanting to transfer to.

    Hope this helps

    Ruth
