Hi!

Sorry for the delay in responding to you, I have just come across your question. Unfortunately, the way to apply for a transfer at this stage is through Clearing. Our clearing closed to applications at the end of August, therefore we are not accepting any applications/transfers for September 2021. Sorry for any disappointment this may cause!

I am currently in first year at another uni, would I be able to apply to transfer to MMU for second year, I did speak to the admissions office and they said I could but I want to be 100% sure.
I hope you guys get back in touch with me as I would appreciate it

Hi!

That should not be a problem as we can consider transfers from other universities into 2/3rd year of our full-time degrees, However, we do not accept transfers during the academic year, therefore it would need to be for September 2022. Which course would you like to transfer on to? Just so i can confirm if we can accept transfers for that course!

No problem! We can consider transfers into our 2nd year of Software Engineering. Just to let you know where advanced entry is possible it is always considered individually by the Admissions Tutor and only suitable when an applicant has successfully completed sufficient study in a subject closely related to the degree they wish to study here at MMU. The Admissions Tutor will have to assess how closely your previous study matches the degree here at MMU to determine if you have the necessary subject knowledge and academic skills to progress onto year 2/3 of the chosen degree

If you didn't know to be considered for a transfer, you will need to complete a new UCAS application at www.ucas.com Please ensure you complete the relevant section of the online application which indicates your point of entry i.e. 2 so the admissions team are aware you are applying for 2nd year.

I hope this helps!

Can you transfer for 3rd year Journalism ?


Hi @Unknown.101

Yes, we can consider transfers to year 3 of BA (Hons) Multimedia Journalism but as mentioned in previous posts, it is at the discretion of the Admissions Tutor and only suitable when an applicant has successfully completed sufficient study in a related subject.

If you wanted to apply for a transfer to start in September 2023, you would need to apply through Clearing at this stage. Our clearing advisers will be happy to help if you call them on 0161 247 3000.

I hope this helps!

Hi @sabziannaa
Unfortunately we cannot consider transfers into year 2 or 3 of our Psychology courses. As a rule of thumb, though, for advanced entry admissions would look at your 1st year results. Sorry if this is disappointing. - Chloe

Hi @shakira2343!

What would you be transferring from? If it's a law foundation year from another university, we can consider it but it won't be guaranteed. To apply, you would submit a regular UCAS application.

Hope this helps!
