I'm about to finish my first year of a midwifery degree. Unfortunately I've had some really bad family news and need to relocate. When I contacted the education lead for the local university there she was initially positive but then cced in others who eventually said there was no way they'd accept a transfer.

Does anyone have any experience of this or advice? I'm desperate to continue with my studies and can't believe a transfer isn't possible somehow.

TIA!

Generally it's pretty hard to transfer between two clinical courses, like midwifery. You may need to just start again from first year - sometimes those kinds of courses are also fussy if you start a similar course elsewhere but don't complete it, although they may consider extenuating circumstances (which your family situation may qualify as). I'd recommend going back to the people you were talking to and ask if you can "transfer" to start in first year again, rather than to go into second year.

If that's not possible, and the family situation is relatively temporary, you could also speak to your current uni to see if you can interrupt your studies for a year and then return.
