Making a decision

Explore new possibilities if you're considering a course change. We're here to guide you with: 

  • Choosing the right course 
  • Assessing if a course change aligns with your goals 
  • Discovering suitable alternative courses 
  • Navigating the transfer process.  

Top Tips: 

  1. Act early in the academic year for better chances of switching to your desired course, if available. Read Changing or leaving your course on the Prospects website. 

  2. If you are sure you want to change on to a different course, connect with the course leader/admissions tutor of your preferred course and explain your reasons for the change. It will be at their discretion as to whether you can transfer, and they will be able to tell you if there is room on the course. 

  3. If transferring within the University, obtain a transfer form from the new course administrator. 

  4. If transferring to another university, understand the application process through UCAS. Seek advice from The Student Room and utilise resources like Student Finance England/Wales/Scotland/Northern Ireland for financial guidance. The Complete University Guide offers helpful information. Contact the askUS Team at 0161 295 0023 (option 1) or for Student Finance queries.
