    Currently in my 1st year studying Computer Science, doing really well so far grade-wise but a lot of the module subjects are definitely not for me.

    I believe I would be much happier and best-suited to another particular degree however my current University offers no degree like it or even remotely similar.

    I was just wondering as of right now: 13/11/17, is there any chance what so ever of being able to transfer University and start year 1 of my desired course this year?

    I know the answer is probably no, and my only option is reapplying for year 1 entry next year, but thought I would see if any option was open.

    Thanks.

    Mid year transfers are virtually unheard of. There’s a handful of exceptions but I wouldn’t get your hopes up.

    Ring your new university to ask about transfers. You might be able to complete year 1 of your current course and swap to yr 2 of the new one. It will depend upon how compatible the two courses are.

    You also need to consider how much content you will need to self teach yourself if you were to be able to transfer to another course- especially if assuming that most unis will have exams for modules in January. But perhaps its best to drop out of your course if you're really not enjoying it, and get some work experience if possible for your new subject- that'll make your application for the new course a lot stronger and also give you an indication as to whether you would actually enjoy the new course or are better off finishing the current degree.
