Eligibility

For currently enrolled undergraduate students, there are three main criteria for eligibility for an Inter-Campus Transfer.

  1.  Your undergraduate degree programme must be available at the Campus you wish to transfer to (you can check this below).
  2.  You must pass all exams and assessment to enable you to progress to the academic year in which you intend to transfer.  If you have a resit, you will normally not be eligible.
  3.  You must not have any outstanding debts to the University (e.g. tuition fees, accommodation fees).

In addition, you must complete one full year of study before transferring.

UK students cannot normally transfer for their final year of study, due to funding restrictions from SAAS and Student Finance England/Wales/Northern Ireland.  Please contact goglobal@hw.ac.uk for further information.

Students on Postgraduate Taught (Masters) Programmes should contact the Go Global Team on goglobal@hw.ac.uk as applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis.
