so i have just started my first year of uni and so far, its not what i expected it to be like and i know its because of the pandemic but i just don't feel comfortable at all. So i am thinking of completing my first year and then transfer into a different uni for my second year. But I'm just so confused on how that works like if i want to apply to start next year, do i have to apply to potential unis by jan like in year 13. it would mean alot if someone can help me out because I'm just so confused and i can't seem to find the answer to my question. thanks

In all honesty you are probably best leaving university now if you don't like it and applying for next year. At this stage you shouldn't have to pay any tuition fees if you leave now and starting with everyone else is far easier than transferring. Transferring is not as easy as you may think because not all universities/courses allow transfers.

What exactly are you finding uncomfortable? Is this your first time living away from home?

ive never known anyone to transfer, but from what I have heard its quite hard, depends on your a level grades, spaces but importantly your first year modules would need to be similar to that unis modules as well. You shouldn't bank on it happening as it isn't certain you could swap uni

The difficulty depends on 1) if the course/modules are recognised or have an equivalent at the university you want to transfer to, 2) if the new university will accept you into Year 2 or whether you'd need to start in Year 1 again, 3) whether both universities mutually agree to the transfer (regarding your academic performance, spaces on the course etc.).
