Transferring to completely different course?

Is it possible to switch from, let's say, something like law to some language degree? But I'm also in my second year :frown:

or would it be better to start a new application on ucas?
Switching into second year or above of a languages degree is very unlikely because you would need proficiency in the language at least equivalent to first year level in that language. You may well be able to switch into first year (and could reapply through UCAS for first year) however bear in mind if you are in second year now (presumably at the end of second year), this will have funding implications for starting a full time degree from first year again - you should speak with student finance to understand the situation carefully. Essentially, you would not have enough funding to cover the whole full time degree, and would need to self fund tuition fees for the first year of the new degree. This doesn't apply to part-time courses though, which have a different funding model.
