Transferring universities in February Watch
I’m going into the second year of my university, but I would like to transfer to a different one at the start of next year. Ideally I’d like to transfer straight into the third year ..... I would ideally message to department head of the course at the university I’d like to go to( Cambridge or St. Andrews)
I think you will find it really unlikely that Cambridge or a top RG university would let you transfer into the 3rd year, probably the same for St. Andrews. If you really want to go to Cambridge a better bet might be to stay where you are, score a stellar BSc and apply for an MSc.
No harm in asking your target universities now to explore the limits of what is / is not possible, its not like they are going to complain to your home institution and would likely never contact them unless things moved to a formal application and they want a transcript and some references.
