Transfer to Goldsmiths

Hello, I am an ug student at an American uni. I'm very interested in creating computing but my university doesn't have related majors, so I'm currently studying computer science. After staying here for a while I feel that I'm not very happy with my studies here and my current program couldn't provide me with the education that I need, so I'm thinking about transferring.

After looking at Goldsmiths' courses Digital Arts Computing and Creating Computing, I feel very fascinated. I have also heard about very positive experiences studying at Goldsmiths from my friends. So I'm really considering transferring to Goldsmiths.

I hope to ask a few questions here:
Firstly, does anyone know if it is possible that I could transfer as a second-year student but when halfway through the second year?
Also, I'm not very sure whether it is actually possible that I can transfer. If I currently study computer science but I have taken a few courses on creating coding, physical computing, 3D modeling, video art, digital design, etc, does it count as classes related to Digital Art Computing/Creating Computing?

If anyone can give me some suggestions/insights, I would appreciate a lot!

Thanks!
You need to submit a UCAS application asap.

A US first year will not be acceptable for entry into year 2 of a UK degree (apart from Scottish degrees) due to the shorter course length.

Thanks a lot for your reply! I'm actually already in my second year that's why I'm thinking about transferring as a year 2 student. I will submit application in UCAS in time! Thank you for your reminder.
They do consider transfers into some courses.

"Goldsmiths will consider applications on their individual merits for direct entry into the second year of certain undergraduate degree programmes, where applicants have completed, or are due to complete, a year (or more) of study on a relevant programme."
