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 available at www.cefims.ac.uk.
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 modules already passed.
See also section 2.
A student who receives credit from certain modules on the basis of subjects previously passed will not be permitted to re-enter the examination for those modules. The marks obtained at the examinations at which the subjects were passed will contribute towards the student's award as appropriate.
See section 8 for the scheme of award.
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.
A student who has successfully completed the examinations for the Postgraduate Diploma and has not accepted that award, may apply to transfer their registration to the related MSc or MBA subject to the rules of progression that apply to these awards. A student who has accepted the award of the Postgraduate Diploma can not apply to transfer their registration.
Transfer from the Postgraduate Diploma to the related MSc or the MBA
A student may progress from the Postgraduate Diploma to the related MSc or the MBA by transferring their registration.
Details are in section 7.
Transfer from the MSc or the MBA to the Postgraduate Diploma

A student registered for a Postgraduate Diploma, an MSc or the MBA, under these regulations, may apply to transfer their registration to another programme of study at the same or similar level. The student will be required to satisfy the entrance requirements and any transfer regulations for the programme to which they wish to transfer. A student may be required to cancel their registration and register afresh.
