Transferring to another institution is a big decision. Before you consider submitting any applications for transfer, ensure that you discuss your situation with your current university such as your personal tutor, academic support services, or welfare support services. They may be able to offer advice, guidance, or options to address your circumstances. You may also want to discuss with them the impact a transfer of institution may have on your current funding, visa or accommodation arrangements.
If you are a student from another University or provider, contact our Admissions department on 01733 214466 or email@example.com to discuss studying at UCP.
You are advised to:
Both your existing and new provider may expect payment of your tuition fees. The amount of fees charged will usually vary depending on when you transfer. It is important that you establish what the fee charge will be at your existing and your new provider before you transfer.
Your maintenance support may be affected if the academic year of the new course you are transferring to have a different duration (e.g. it runs for more years or fewer years than your current course would have done). Student Finance will recalculate your money based on the academic year dates of your new course.

All full time transfer applications must be made through UCAS, and the normal deadlines apply. You can download a part time application form from the UCP website.
Admission with Prior Certified Learning (APCL) relates to learning completed through an earlier course of study. If you have previously completed a course which is relevant to your proposed course, you should make this clear when you apply for admission.
Evidence submitted in support of an APCL claim must meet the following criteria:
If you think that you may meet these criteria and would like further guidance on the likelihood of transfer applications being considered for your chosen course, please contact the Admissions Office in the first instance for further information.
Transfer applicants apply through UCAS. Your application will then be assessed to determine the stage of the degree programme here you can transfer into, based on your previous studies.
Where a student admitted to an undergraduate course with APCL, their result (including the classification of their degree, where relevant) is determined on the basis of the work they have undertaken at UCP. Marks or grades obtained for APCL do not contribute to the algorithm used to determine the classification of an UCP award. UCP award certification indicates if an award has been conferred using APCL credit. Students admitted with credit may not be awarded an Honours Degree unless they have been awarded a minimum of 120 credits of new learning at level 6.
If you transfer to another provider you will need to permanently withdraw from UCP. This is a big decision that should not be taken lightly. UCP may be able to provide you with the support you need to continue with your studies, whether that's changing to a part-time course, or transferring to a university closer to home. Whatever your reasons, allow UCP to help you explore your options.
Please see our webpage - Thinking of Leaving UCP? and talk to your current Course Leader and Student Support as soon as you start thinking about leaving UCP.
If you’re not happy, or your circumstances have changed, you may be able to transfer to a different university or college to complete your studies. There are a number of things you'll need to research and consider first:
Please ensure you talk to you Admissions department so that you have all the information necessary to make the right decision. Consider all the implications, including those that are financial which are discussed earlier in this guidance.
