If you have changed your mind about your current course, or you have completed your course and want to study a new course, it may be possible to do so at our institution.
As well as general academic considerations, the University will need to take the following into account:
- Student Route requirements, e.g. academic progression and the time limits ('caps') on specific levels of study, which may prevent you changing course; and
- Whether you have completed your original course or not.
And depending upon when you applied for your current Student Route visa there are differing restrictions affecting changing course at the same institution.
If you do change courses, we will inform the Home Office about this.
Read pages 72 -78 of the Home Office Student Route policy guidance, for instructions on whether you can change course at the same institution and, if so, how.
Please refer to our guidance on 5 year cap as this may apply to you.
Please contact the IST if you are considering changing courses.
