Hi Rachel Hatt,

There is the possibility of transferring to Lancaster University. On the Admissions Page, it states:

"Transferring to Lancaster University
For some of our degrees we will consider applicants for direct entry to Year 2. Please bear in mind that: a) we would want to check that your pre-degree qualifications (eg A levels) would have met our entry requirements into the first year; b) we typically ask for upper second class honours marks in the first year at your current university; and c) we would require a reference from one of your current tutors. Application should be made via UCAS in the usual way.
Please note Lancaster University does not permit entry into Year 3 (or 4) of any degree programme."

The Head of Geography has just responded with this, also:

"Yes, it may be possible to transfer directly into year 2 of our degree at Lancaster. However, it will depend on the grades you achieved in year 1 of their degree at Leicester, the modules you took at Leicester, and your A-Level or GCSSE qualifications. If you contact [email protected] with your first year transcript from Leicester and details of their pre-university qualifications then we can assess this request."
