Hi guys,

I was wondering if anybody has transferred from one uni to another, using just their foundation degree, in recent years? Only because the posts I see regarding this have been quite a few years ago.

Also if it’s possible to even transfer with quite bad A level grades, moderate GCSE grades (A in eng Lang, B in all sciences and C in maths Etc) but a really good foundation year?

Thank you!

Do you mean a foundation year or a foundation degree? The 2 are completely different and if you talk to universities about transferring with a foundation degree if you’re doing a foundation year then you are likely to get incorrect advice.

If you look at the top of the applications, clearing and ucas forum there’s a thread called University Transfer FAQ. The first post explains what you need to do to arrange a transfer - that all applies if you’re transferring after a foundation year too. You will need a reference from your current university, a full ucas application and you need to talk to universities you want to change to asap to avoid wasting any of your choices. Because you’re applying for first year entry you need to try to meet the January 15 ucas deadline.

A transfer like this is considered using your gift year of funding by student finance - so if you fail and need to repeat a year later you would not get a tuition fee loan for the extra year. It’s important that you’re confident that you are making the right choices

Omg really!! What universities did u apply for? I didn’t apply this year because I contacted ucl and Queen Mary’s and they said they don’t accept foundation transfers (( so I just thought probably no unis accept them and to just wait till after first year. Also does your foundation degree give you a certificate at the end? I think I still have time to send off my ucas as well!

UCL doesn’t but I think Queen Mary University does accept it. I applied to Newcastle, Durham, Royal Holloway, Exeter and Lancaster. I got offers from Newcastle, Exeter and Royal Holloway. Waking for Durham to make a decision and Lancaster rejected it saying that don’t accept the qualification. There are so many other unis that accept it. Kings College is a good one.

Oh you’re going to live out! Cool! Congratulations on your offers!! Was there any reason you didn’t apply to any London ones or was it just due to preference? I don’t think I’ll be able to move out 🥺 but thank you so much!! I appreciate it loads
