Transferring your degree
If you want to change to a different programme
There are strict deadlines governing degree transfers. Students wishing to transfer into a programme owned by the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences (PPLS) are advised to speak to a PPLS student support officer at an early stage. Transfers are not always straightforward, even for transfers between a combined honours degree and a related single honours degree programme.
Students can no longer transfer programme in the academic session 2018/19. Please use the guidance and form below to apply for transfers in the 2019/20 academic session.
Decisions are made by the PPLS senior Personal Tutor and are based on:
- Academic achievement at University
- Academic achievement prior to entry and/or entry qualifications
- Relevant special circumstances
Students can expect to hear the outcome of their transfer application during the summer break.
