So I'm in first year of my current university but I'm looking to transfer to another university. I've actually already communicated with the potential university I'm looking to transfer and I've received the Conditional Offer on UCAS which I already met, and it's pretty much 99% finalised that I'm transferring.

But I have realised I never told my current university that I'm leaving and going to transferring in my second year.

What is the deadline for telling my university? How would this relate to Student Finance?

Thank you! This transferring stuff is quite complicated, as in juggling two universities at once.

I'm not sure there is a deadline as such but PQ will know if there is one.

Re student finance I would ring them or email them to let them know you are switching unis as soon as you know for sure that you are

Apply for student finance asap. Put in that you’ll be studying at the new university and course.

You don’t have to notify your current university but it’s a good idea to let them know once you’re sure. That lets them plan better for your classmates that you’re leaving behind.
If you don’t tell them then they’ll realise you aren’t coming back when you don’t re-enrol in August.
