11 Transfer of registration
This section applies both to transfer between different programmes and within the same programme, unless indicated otherwise.
Details of how to apply to transfer are in the student handbook.
Where permitted, all applications to transfer will be considered on an individual basis. Permission to transfer, any additional fees payable and any period of transferred registration granted will be at the discretion of the University. Any refund of fees shall be subject to the conditions in section 10.
An application to transfer that is submitted after a student has entered for any examination will not be considered until after the result of that examination has been published. The result of that examination will then be taken into account by the University in instances when permission to transfer is dependent on the student's examination record.
In certain circumstances, a student who transfers their registration may receive credit for courses already passed.
A student who receives credit from certain courses on the basis of subjects previously passed will not be permitted to re-enter the examination for those courses. The marks obtained at the examinations at which the subjects were passed will contribute towards the student's award as appropriate.
See section 7 for the mark scheme.
A student who is not permitted to transfer to a particular programme but who wishes to join that programme must cancel their existing registration and apply to register afresh. The student must already satisfy the entrance requirements for the programme. A student who registers afresh in this way will not be permitted to carry credit for any subjects previously passed either to the programme concerned or, in the event of a subsequent transfer, to another programme. They will also not be permitted to carry any failed attempts at subjects from their previous registration.
Transfer from the Access programme to the BSc Business Administration
A student may progress from the Access programme to the BSc Business Administration by transferring their registration provided that they have successfully passed the equivalent of two full courses of the Access programme.
Transfer from the BSc Business Administration to the Access programme
A student is not permitted to transfer their registration from the BSc Business Administration to the Access programme.
Please note that the general regulations (GR), 11.8 - 11.11 are not applicable for students of the Access Programme for BSc Business Administration.
Transfer to other programmes at Levels 4, 5 and 6 of the FHEQ
A student registered for an award will not be permitted to transfer their registration to any other programme other than the BSc Business Administration.
See Glossary for definition of FHEQ.
Transfers to programmes at Level 7 of the FHEQ
See Glossary for definition of 'FHEQ'.
A student registered for an award is not permitted to transfer their registration to a programme at Level 7 of the FHEQ. A student will instead be required to cancel their existing registration and to submit a fresh application for registration and comply with the regulations for the programme concerned.
Transfer of College based students
A student studying for an award as a College based student of the University of London may apply to complete their studies for the same award as an International Programmes Student and may be considered for credit and/or accreditation of prior learning for courses previously passed. All applications for credit and/or accreditation of prior learning will be considered on an individual basis and at the discretion of the University.
