If you are a current undergraduate student, you must have completed one full year of study before you can do an inter-campus transfer, and:

  •  Your degree programme must be available at the campus you wish to transfer to (see below).
  •  You must pass all exams and assessments 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.
  •  You must not have any outstanding debts to the University, such as tuition fees or accommodation fees.

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 more 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.

If you are an eligible undergraduate, you can apply now for temporary or permanent transfers for Semester 2 (January 2020) using the MyHWU – Inter-Campus Transfer application on Student Self Service.
