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.

Please read the guidance document below carefully before filling out the degree transfer request form. It contains important information about the transfer process. Once you have read this you can fill out the application form at the at the bottom of the page.

Decisions are made by the PPLS senior Personal Tutor and are based on:

  • Academic achievement at University
  • Academic achievement prior to entry and/or programme entry thresholds
  • Student's personal statement and motivation for changing programme
  • Relevant special circumstances

Students can expect to hear the outcome of their transfer application during the summer break, ahead of the start of next academic year. Choosing courses for next academic year: We advise that you submit your course choices based on the degree you are applying to transfer into. There is a space on the PPLS course choice form for students to inform the Teaching Office of any other important information -- please note here that you are applying to transfer degrees, and include back-up course choices based on your current degree programme.
