Further guidance

Transfers for 1st Year new entrants are only permitted in the first two weeks of teaching and must be approved by the CAHSS Admissions Office. After Week 2, it is not possible to transfer until the end of the academic year.

If you have not completed all the compulsory courses of the preceding years of the MHSES programme, we will need to check that you meet the entry requirements for the programme, and you may be required to take a full-time or part-time repeat year.  No student transferring degree programme will be permitted more than one additional year of study.
