So this is kind of a question to anyone who has /knows anyone who has changed unis 2nd year, but of course if you think you can help plz reply.

So I’ve contacted X uni to change courses and start 2nd year. The courses at X and Y uni are very similar yet I wasn’t allowed on because it is too different. I’m not annoyed, I get it they don’t want a student who has been learning something completely different but what are my options here? I’m going to call the uni on Monday and ask if they have any courses I could get onto, I’m also going to suggest doing summer reading or taking another module in my 2ndyear to catch up. Anyone who has any ideas that could possibly help would be grateful. Thanks

If the university has judged that the courses are not similar enough then that’s not going to change. Your options are either to restart from first year or to apply to other universities that are closer in content

Be careful with transfers, they can backfire. Depending on subject, the number of universities accepting such a mechanism may be limited.
