If you have started your degree at a different university and would like to transfer to complete your studies here at City, we're committed to trying to help you.
We accept students transferring from other universities for second-year undergraduate entry on a case-by case basis, whether this is due to a change in personal circumstances - such as location, funding or student welfare - or other reasons.
However, outside of existing university 2+2 agreements, this is currently not available for courses in the following:
- The Business School
- School of Health Sciences
- Department of Computer Science.
Your overall degree classification as a direct second-year entrant will be based on the marks obtained at City only, with a weighting of 33% to 67% between the second and third year. Marks you received at your previous university will not count towards your degree classification.
If you want to apply for second-year entry please be aware that you must:
- Currently be studying on a course in an equivalent subject area
- Have achieved grades equal to the entry requirements for first-year entry (A-levels, international qualifications, foundation years, access courses or other relevant requirements)
- Have covered sufficiently similar content to that of our first year students
- Be gaining or have gained at least a 2:1 in every module in your current first year. You must provide official documentation of this as evidence, such as a university transcript.
If you feel you meet these requirements you should apply through UCAS as early as possible - many transfer students apply when their first semester exam results are published - and we can then assess your eligibility. You will need to select your point of entry as year two with UCAS.
What to include in your application
In your application please include:
- The exact name of the degree you are studying towards
- The institution at which you are studying
- The modules you have taken
- Any scores you have achieved.
This information will enable us to make a more informed decision as to whether the content that you have studied is to an appropriate level for second-year entry. If you do not meet all of the above requirements your application is likely to be unsuccessful.
