As Coventry University say here:

"If you would like to transfer to us from a university that is not part of the Midlands Enterprise Universities group, please submit your application to us via UCAS."

BTW, why do want to move? Why do you think another university would be keen to accept you given that you failed your third year?

Wouldn't it be easier just to stay put, buckle-down, and get through your second attempt at year three where you are?

i am coming to that conclusion as well. I just feel really anxious about going back to UEL, in a new class not knowing anyone but the lecturers and them knowing how i was when i was there before (i was going through a really rough patch mentally due to this toxic freind and was smoking a lot of cannabis which was affecting my studies, my lecturers knew about everything going on). I think it also comes from the embarrassment and shame i got when i failed the third year. I felt like a fresh new start would be better for me. But at the same time i dont think its worth messing up my degree if it doesnt go my way. Maybe itll be better if i just get a studio so im away from my toxic family, put most of my time into my studies and then do a post graduate degree at Coventry instead in a few years time.

Hi there,

It looks like you seem happy with your decision however in case you decide to change your mind, I've included some information you could have a look at regarding transferring to our university.

I can ensure that the environment and student experience at Coventry University is pleasant and enjoyable. It terms of transferring to our university, the best thing to do is call the uni and ask them about the process of transferring, since you will get a better idea of the process, before submitting your application at UCAS. (I have included the contact details below). We are also hosting our next open day this Saturday. I highly recommend coming along. The Admissions Teams should be available on the day so you can discuss about the transferral too.
