    Hi I am currently studying mathematics degree and I don't like the mechanics side of it. I wanted to study math with finance at a different unijversity however couldn't because of personal reasons. Is it possible to transfer to the second year to do math with finance. Also the university I want to transfer to is just below the uhniversity I am currently in

    Hi mnak


    I would go and have a conversation with one of your tutors - I take it you are in first year?

    Even for joint honours, you only tend to specialise in the specific area in second year (based on experience of my own course, may well be different for others). I'm sure that as long as it is something the uni offers then it may be a possibility.

    Really? I'm a bit surprised. Didn't you have different module options in your second year which had both subject options which you decided which ones you want to specialise more in. Like wasn't there let say t 3 modules you had compulsory and 5 optional,couldn't you choose what you wanted

    I study Business Management and Marketing so it might be a bit different - but in first year everyone on all of the joint honours course studied exactly the same no matter what there joint honours was. In second year we then had 3 compulsory modules and 1 optional.

    If mechanics has been one of your modules then it may be worth having a chat with one of your tutors
