10 Transfer of registration
Details of how to apply to transfer are in the student handbook.
Transfer to a degree from the Access route
An International Programmes Student registered for the Access route in the fields of Economics, Management, Finance and the Social Sciences may progress to a degree, by applying to transfer their registration, provided that:
- for transfer to the Standard Route, they have passed two full courses of the Access route
- for transfer to either the Standard Route or the Graduate Entry Route they already satisfy the entrance requirements for the degree on the basis of other qualifications.
See section 6 for details of progression to a degree.
A student who wishes to transfer must apply to the University to do so.
A student whose registration is governed by the Access route (New Regulations) who transfers to the degree will transfer to the Standard Route (New Regulations).
A student will be credited with courses previously passed at the Access route which are the same as those listed in the structure of the relevant degree.
Courses which a student has passed which are not available (or are not equivalent to courses available) on the degree to which the student is transferring, may have to be discarded.
See the Regulations for the degrees for detailed structures and further rules: www.londoninternational.ac.uk/current_students/general_resources/regulations/regs_1112
Credits are awarded for named courses, although a student transferring to a degree through the Standard Route (other than the BSc Economics and Management) may claim credit for one unnamed 100 course if they have previously passed a 100 course which is not available on the degree to which they are transferring
An Access route student who transfers to a degree and has previously failed one or more courses will not carry those fails with them. Failed courses which are available at the degree to which the student is transferring will count as new courses when taken for the first time after transfer. A student who fails a course which is required at the degree to which they transfer must take this course again after transfer.
A student who transfers will not be required or permitted to enter or re-enter for a course (or equivalent course) in which they have previously passed and for which they have been credited. The mark obtained at the examination at which the course (or equivalent course) was passed will count towards the final classification of degree.
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.
Transfer to other programmes from the Access route
An International Programmes Student registered for the Access route will not be permitted to transfer their registration to the Diploma in Economics or the Diploma in Social Sciences as an International Programmes Student if they have made an attempt at the examination for one or more courses of the Access route. A student who has not made an attempt at an examination and who satisfies the necessary entrance and attendance requirements may apply to transfer.
A student registered for the Access route will not be permitted to transfer to any other programme.
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 to the Access route another programme of study
An International Programmes Student registered for the Diploma in Economics, or the Diploma in Social Sciences, or a Diploma for Graduates, or a degree in the fields of Economics, Management, Finance and the Social Sciences will not be permitted to transfer their registration to the Access route under any circumstances.
To register for the Access route, a student will be required to cancel their registration for the degree or Diploma for which they are registered and apply to register afresh for the Access route. A student who is permitted to register afresh in this way will not be permitted to carry credit for any courses previously passed nor to carry any failed attempts at courses from their previous registration.
A student registered for a programme other than those named in paragraph 10.10 may apply to transfer to the Access route provided they satisfy the relevant entrance requirements.
See section 2 for details on credits and accreditation of prior learning.
