I'm deciding between studying at LSE and UCL atm. I know I'd like UCL but I could either hate or love LSE. I'd be much more willing to take the risk of studying at LSE if I knew how transferring unis worked. So I'm wondering how easy it is to transfer.

1. Could I transfer in the first weeks or would I have to wait a whole year? If I transfer at the end of the year will I have to start from square one?

2. The problem is that for UCL I have a contextual offer and I already have my grades which do not meet the requirement for a standard offer so would this be a problem if I were to decide to transfer?

3. The courses differ slightly: Economic History at LSE and History, Politics and Economics at UCL. Will this matter?

1. A whole year imo as LSE likely to be jam packed. Do LSE do transfers?
2. LSE look at everything like a fresh application.
3. Yes it matters for credits, its up to them.

I think it would be much more difficult than you imagine. You seem to be saying you already have 100% place at UCL based on a contextual offer and you are considering risking it for LSE? I would not, although am not sure what grade difference you need to make for LSE.
Talk to LSE.

Generally speaking, it will be hard, if not impossible, to transfer to LSE or UCL.
