if I started a Psychology course at UWE for example and after the first year wanted to transfer to computer science at a different university, say Cardiff, could I do that and still get student finance for the first year of the psychology course and the three years of computer science course? Would their be any repercussions of doing one year of Psychology and applying for Computer Science in 2022 if I realised it wasn’t the course for me?

I’d really appreciate getting filled in on any possible repercussions of deciding to switch after one year, I’m stressing out majorly about this and I can’t decide so any input is really appreciated

Far as I'm aware you are allowed 1 throwaway year.
So, if you wanted to do psychology for 1 year you could still do a 3 year computer science course afterwards and recieve full funding.

Yes you get a gift/ insurance year, so you could start a course and quit after year 1 to start another course.


The question you need to ask yourself is considering you only get one gift year and its for exam failure or illness or unavoidable circumstances and as that gift year os going to be £15k-£20k, then is that a good use of your funding? Maybe a gap year would be cheaper or more financially astute?
You could do more research and get experience?

Psychology has one of the lowest average salaries for graduates 5 years after graduating. Be warned imo the market is pretty saturated.

Thank you for the response I really appreciate it, I might take a year out and study a Psychology A level? But I really have no idea

Would it be unlikely for me to be able to receive funding for a Masters degree if I want to do, 1 year of psych, dropout, 3 years of computer science - then a masters.

I have never done a post grad degree so I am unsure on the funding.
But I do know that the funding for post grad degrees is different to a undergrad degree. So your talking about two different things. I dont see why it would effect it.

That being said going to university with the goal of dropping out is incredibly stupid.
