Information for students wanting to transfer their degree programme

Undergraduate transfers within the School of Informatics

If you are a continuing Informatics undergraduate student and are interested in transferring onto another degree programme within the School of Informatics, please contact the Student Support Team (

Your courses should meet the Degree Programme Table requirements of the new degree, or have permissible substitutions.  Transfers onto the 5 year Informatics MInf degree programme have additional considerations to take into account, including progression requirements in UG3 and UG4, and the feasibility of extending the Honours Project. 

You may ask for a transfer at any time.  For UG1 - UG3 students transfers will be processed during 2 transfer windows in the academic year:

  • From July until the end of week 2 in semester 1
  • From the end of semester 1 until the end of week 2 in semester 2
