    Posted an issue some time ago and no one offered any help. Anywho, just wanting to know if ANYONE has any idea whether it's possible to do a single honours degree in the first year but transfer to a combined/joint honours/major minor degree in the 2nd year??
    I dont mean starting all over again....but simple transfering having done 1 year in one subject. Thanks...!! x

    Yes it's possible. Depends on the university and the course though, so just because I just 'yes' doesn't meant it will definately happen in your case. You need to contact your uni and ask.

    Edit: Looking at your other post, it seems you have already asked to do this and the director of the joint honours programme has said it is too late. So there's your answer. Why are you asking us? That's why everyone ignored your last post.

    It depends on the university, the subject, your grades and all sorts of things. But it is possible.

    I'm sure it is possible - but as already stated - check with the uni your applying to

    It would probably depend on how the degrees were structured, but I'd assume it would be difficult, as you'd essentially be asking to skip the first year for one of your subjects.

    In the majority of unis you can take a joint honours and then specialise in a single honours. This is because on most uni courses, you're not examined in the first year.
    If you're really uncertain what to do it's best to take a joint honours or go to somewhere like Loughborough where it's compulsary to have a taster of 2 other subjects while your studying your main one. If you simply take a single honours and want to then take up another subject- you will have no idea what it's like.

    Erm no. i said i wanted to transfer degree now to do a joint honours and if there were any GENERAL rules regarding cut off dates. Not if i could do a single honours in the first year and transfer for the second. Thank you. Obviously Rottcodd saying yes doesnt mean i can do it. I was just wondering if anyone had any idea - staff can take forever to get back and let you know what the deal is.

    Thanks everyone for your input...really appreciated!! x

    But why are you bothered about 'GENERAL rules' - surely you are more bothered about whatever rule your particular
    university has? I know university staff can take forever to get back to you, which is a pain, I was just pointing out that, because it's so specific to the university, you really just have to wait and see what they say, as we would just be wildly speculating.
