Transferring courses or universities
It is sometimes possible for students studying on courses at other Higher Education institutions to be considered for entry onto a comparable course at Birmingham City University. If you would like to be considered for a transfer onto one of our courses, you will need to apply through UCAS.
Consideration for advanced entry onto our courses will largely depend on the content of your current studies and how this compares to the content of our course. It can also depend on how well you have performed on your current course. Where appropriate comparable study is evident, it may be possible for us to award accreditation for prior learning and possibly grant advanced entry onto our course. This is something which is assessed and decided on upon receipt of a completed application form. All applications are considered on an individual basis.
I’ve started a course at Birmingham City University but would now like to transfer to another course within the University. Is this possible?
We can consider current Birmingham City University students for a transfer to another course where appropriate. If you know which course you want to transfer to, the first step would be to contact the Course Director of that course. If they agree to accept you onto their course, the internal transfer procedure is used and a form is completed by both your current Course Director and the Course Director for the course you are transferring to. If you are enrolled at the University, you do not need to apply through UCAS to be considered for an internal transfer.

You will need to contact the university offering the course you are interested in to find out whether they will consider you for a transfer. They will also be able to advise you about how you can apply to them if they are interested in considering you.
If you agree a transfer with another institution, you will need to inform us that you will be leaving so we can ensure the necessary paperwork is completed.
