Hi,

I have a feeling this could possibly be in the wrong category.

However, I am currently studying Computer Science with a foundation year at the University of Bedfordshire.

I am just wondering, come next September when I will go into my first year. Will I be able to change courses altogether? So for example, once I pass Computer Science with foundation year, can I change to Law or Economics etc?

I am happy to remain at the same university that isn't the issue.

If anyone can give me some help that'd be great.

You might be able to, but it depends on your other qualifications and how similar the courses are. The foundation year will teach you what you need for that specific degree, so if the course is similar you'll need similar background knowledge. Computer science to law is probably not possible, but law to economics is more likely to be.

Hi @bradpock

You need to speak to your current university to find out what your options are, however you may be able to transfer if the course you want to join does not have any subject specific entry requirements.

Hope you are able study the course you want to do.

Hi Bradpock,

Thank you for your question.

From the Student Finance point of view, you can change your course completely. In terms of your funding, every student is entitled to the duration of their course, plus an additional year of funding so if you have had only one year of study before you switch courses, it shouldn't affect your funding unless you have another repeat year in the future.

Thank you,
Kruti

Hello, Thank you for this answer. I am also interested in changing the University (same profile) after the foundation year with Student Finance. I was wondering if I need first to talk to the chosen University and If I am accepted to talk to Student Finance or to ask first SFE as I won't be able to make any transfer if I am not allowed to. Also, if before changing, my marital status changes would that be a problem for SFE? Thank you. Cristina
