I basically applied to do pharmacy at kings and reading but got rejected i went through clearing and got into economics at kingston and economics and accounting at brunel...i really want to study economics but i cant get into any other uni except kingston or brunel. If i accelpt Kingston willl it be possible for me to apply to a different uni for my second year.. is that even possible and i can retake my Alevels while im doing my first year 2) I can accept brunels course which is economics and accounting however i dont think ill be able to transfer to a different uni as it involves accounting as well. 3) I can get into DMU or portsmouth which are both good for economics and just communte from london as i wont be able to live out. Please help!!!!!!

In theory, you can apply for 2nd year entry, but not all unis will do it - it will depend if they have vacancies. You can contact them directly when you are considering applying

Have you contacted DMU and Portsmouth? Which uni would you prefer?

I've contacted DMU and portsmouth and both have made an offer - however its just way too far as i live in west london but i dont mind commuting only problem is i cant find a coach that leaves early in the morning. If i am able to transfer would i need to retake my a level exams as well as wait for my first year results for my application to be considered

Why couldn't you stay in uni accommodation?

And you wouldn't have to take your A Levels again - generally the offer is based on grades in your first year. Not all unis will accept 2nd year transfers though

I'm sorry to hear that Have you considered the OU? They may not be in a position to say one way or another for this time next year, but it can't hurt to ask

National Express have buses leaving London Victoria to Portsmouth at 1am and 4am on Monday (random date). To Leicester it's 7am. Remember that you won't be needed early morning every day, and if you explain your situation to the lecturers, they may be able to ensure that they put you in good tutorials/seminars where there is an option

Trust me the journey is not reasonable. I can say from experience that you get exhausted and it's not worth the commute. Try going to a closer university to study or consider joint degrees in economics.

Depends on where in Essex, but that's potentially closer and quicker than either of those. Best to check on National Rail
