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.

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 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.

To apply to transfer to an undergraduate programme owned by School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences (PPLS), students should fill out the online form:
