Hey, I'm considering beginning one degree, then transferring to another, as the title suggests. The two possible scenarios are A) transferring from one (in England) degree to an equivalent one in a different uni (in Scotland), or B) transferring from one degree to another slightly different but related degree (they're both to do with language) within Scotland. I'm hoping to transfer into the 1st year of the degree. I'm wondering if anyone can give me any advice on this or tell me where and when I could get more info on it. Thanks in advance for any help!

University Transfer FAQ

First question: why?

Second question: are you aware of the different fee/loan arrangements in Scotland? Are you Scottish or EU or something else?

The why is a bit complicated, it's to do with personal circumstances.

Yeah, I know about the funding arrangements in Scotland. I'm a Scottish student, but there's a larger variety of appropriate courses in England, hence the possibility there. Thanks for the link!

Ok, so if you are doing well at an English university and need to transfer to a similar course at a Scottish university there's a reasonable chance you can transfer into year 2 or even 3. I'm sure you know Scottish courses are usually a year longer than English university courses.

If this is a likely scenario it may be worth contacting a few universities now to discuss the possibility...

Thanks! I hope this isn't a bother to ask, but you don't happen to know if universities would be likely to allow you to transfer into 1st year? Although I get that it isn't necessary to do so. No worries if you don't know, though, and cheers for the info you've already given me!

Another thing to remember is that Scotland has a separate SCQF credit system, so it may be difficult to transfer credits. I'm transferring from a Scottish university to one in England, but they are unable to recognise SCQF credits.

Universities will of course let you restart your degree from first year, but you need to be aware of any potential funding issues if you take that option.

There may be funding problems going into Year 1 in Scotland if you have completed Year 1 in England.(equivalent to Year 2 in Scotland).
