Admissions to all University programmes are governed by the University Academic Regulations. For transferring students, some sections of the regulations are particularly relevant. For students transferring into the University, the regulations define credit and cover admissions procedures and recognition of prior learning for admission purposes. For students transferring out of the University, the regulations cover assessment, progression and awards. Students may only internally transfer into a programme or programme pathway in the first two weeks of term; this applies to both new and returning students.

Types of transfers:

Internal transfer refers to students moving from one programme of study, or pathway of study within a programme of study, to another within the University. 

External transfer refers to students either transferring into the University from a different higher education provider or transferring out of the University to a different higher education provider. 

In the unlikely event of a programme suspension or closure then then those affected students will be supported by the University as outlined in the student protection plan
