Why do you need to transfer universities?
Will you be transferring into Yr 2 or Yr 1 of the new university?
Why did you switch last year?

You're charged £9k (ish) for every year - the question is whether you'll be able to get a tuition fee loan to cover that cost or whether you'll need to find the money from your own funds.

The workload on my course is almost non-existent. It's my first year of this course to clarify, but I still think the fact that I was able to finish my coursework for the whole week in 2 HOURS is unacceptable. Coupled with the fact that our 6 hours lecture time has now been cut down to 4 to give us "more time to write".

I'd hope to transfer to the second year of the new course so I wouldn't be lumped with another 9k, because I'm not sure if I can afford it. But it seriously looks like the alternative for me is dropping out. I'm not paying 9k for 4 hours of lectures a week, I'm just not.

Last year I switched because I wanted a change in careers basically.

I have no idea if they'll let me start at year 2, but I'm praying that they will. I haven't contacted them about it yet as I'm not sure who to go through.

If you transfer to year two of a new course then your student finance will cover you, if you have to start again from year one then you’d be a year short for your tuition fees so you would need to fund it yourself.

https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=1781424 explains how to arrange a transfer. You'll need to apply soon for many universities, meet the 1st yr standard entry requirements and have compatible modules between the two courses (as judged by the new university - usually after you apply).

With so little time before the deadline I suggest you RING your preferred universities and speak to your tutor ASAP to arrange a reference (and get your UCAS application done and sorted)
