I'm currently studying biomedical science (started Sept 2022). However, I am applying through UCAS to study a different course at the same university for September 2023.
I am unable to transfer onto this course from my current course, so I need to reapply through UCAS for the next academic year, starting from year 1 again. I do intend to complete the current year of the biomedical science course I am on, and then will just start the new course Sept 2023.
In terms of making this change on student finance, do I
A) Just reapply as normal.. (is there an option to specify the course I am reapplying for student finance for?) and say the course I am starting, where and what year I am starting from.
B) Let my university know at the end of the last term that I do not intend on returning to the course and that I am starting a new course and so they should inform student finance of my withdrawal so that I can apply for student finance as a new student?
In relation to option B, will student finance notify me that they have been told I've left the course? How will I know that student finance have been informed that I am no longer on that course so then I can apply as a new student with no complications?
