    You might get better responces if you posted this in General University Discussion? But I'd phone up the uni I had in mind and ask.

    Ring round the unis your interested in transferring to and ask if they would be willing to take you. Some may say that if your pass your first at your current uni with with a certain grade they will take you from second year. Some may take you now, best to ring up admissions and find out.

    Ring them up and ask. If they are willing to take you go and visit if you can.

    i guess you should just ring around and see what they say, i was going to transfer in my first year but when i called them up they said i had to apply to UCAS and it would be the first year i would have to redo. after spending £3000 on tution fees i really didnt want to waste that money because i wasnt enjoying my self. but its just me talking.

    tbh i actually am sort of glad i stayed because i started to enjoy it after the 2nd year - not having the "UNI EXPERIENCE" that everyone raves about but its not that bad.

    Nemsis- Thats the down side of it all and also other things like making new friends again ...(i am not the confident type of person tbh..i wont kno anyone)

    But at MMU I hate it...it not enjoyable because I really dont understand what I am doing; I ask for help and none is given (staff are rude) ...It also is a bit like a dictatiorship (sort of school like with their approaches like the tutorials (seminars) if you dont attend they send a letter and you hae explain yourself (not that I missed any...)) furthermore there is too much work (especially if you dont understand it) and the coursework no one has given any clue what it is about or when to hand it in in fact they havent even mentioned it at all... and talking to other people they hate it cos of the similiar reasons as well...

    I wanted to transfer from leeds met to leeds uni and they said i couldnt. They didnt even ask about qualifications or what uni i was currently at. So, I've decided to email them and ask again, lol.

    tbh no university will prevent you from leaving - worst thing that may happen is the dean or your tutors will want to give you a one on one to see if its a problem they can fix.

    transfering shouldnt be a problem but i know from experience some unis are just snobby, i remember calling up southampton and warwick when i was thinking of transfering but they wouldnt have it. i mean i had the grades and go to UCL but still they said no... i didnt think civil eng was so popular there!

    heres my working, contact the uni, talk to their department about the course and why you want to join, then someone will say apply via ucas, u sign up for ucas and fill out all the points (thats something that put me off that i would have to write another PS about why i want to join the other uni and what i will bring). finally if you want to join the second year (because its the same course) you pick defered entry - by doing this you skip the deadline date.

    well you could be honest, ie i went to the uni expecting this but it ended up as this, or you could use a family issue - like my mum is sick and i want to be closer to home.

    my advice is to be honest tell them that you went to MMU expecting the level of teaching and learning would be high but it wasnt so you are looking to transfer to a more traditional uni (no offense intended for anyone that goes MMU)
