Is it possible to transfer to King's College London in an undergraduate course of BSc Computer Science from a different university which offers the same course but a different UCAS code like I100?

The UCAS code isn't an issue. What matters is your prior academic performance. Kings will still expect you to have the same entry standards and they will need you to have covered the same first year work as their first years such that you can move on to the second year. The only way to find out is to ask Kings.

I received a cs conditional offer from kcl, and I am from another Russell group uni( don't want to tell too much about my personal information, my mates may see this thread, but it is a uni that is capable to kcl, I just want to live in London), and I did not have A-level exam result ( from a foundation year) and when I submitted my application I did not mention my foundation grade also( kcl will not accept it anyway) .The thing is here Kcl gave me a conditional offer that asked me to get 60 overall in the first year.I hope this could help you.

If I have A-levels it will be 2nd year, but unfortunately I do not have them...so it is 1st year.

Hi,
I know this is an old thread from a few months ago, but I wanted to ask when you applied through UCAS, did you initially apply for second year, then they offered you first year? Or did you initially apply first year?

I'm asking cause I don't have A-levels either.

Hi, I am considering the same uni for CS as well.
Can I ask in what period did you first emailed the uni about transferring?

I was planning to but finally I dint because I wanted Economics and kings business school dean’s assistant said they don’t consider 2nd yr and I have to start first again. But then I am international student so if i pay £28k a year i will be broke compared to £21k at all other. Also, its ranked very low for its economics so...

Where are you applying?

Depends on the course... There is a list of courses where you can transfer to 2nd year https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/undergra...rring-to-kings But you must meet their 1st yr A level requirement for that course only then they will accept fro 2nd yr for those courses only.

Hi,
my course is economics and is not listed, however, the modules learnt at my current uni are very similar to those at KCL.

what did you end up doing in the end

thanks
