The School of Psychology considers transfer requests from students at other universities in the United Kingdom and overseas only for those who have completed or are completing studies at level 1 and wish to continue at level 2 at Cardiff. Transfers are considered only if the number of students likely to commence level 2 in the same session is below the student number target set by Cardiff University for Psychology programmes. The criteria for transfer would be the same as those for an applicant for level 1, with the additional requirement of a certain level of attainment on the level 1 course at the other University. This level of attainment is determined on a case by case basis, in recognition of the fact that forms of assessment differ across Universities and programmes.
In addition, there must be a good degree of correspondence between the academic structures of the relevant programmes at the respective Universities. Applications for transfer must be made formally through UCAS, indicating the point (year) of entry. However, students seeking transfers are strongly advised to contact the Admissions Team prior to applying via UCAS, giving full details of their academic studies and their reasons for wishing to transfer.
Transfers into psychology programmes from other courses within Cardiff University are not considered.
The School of Psychology will consider applicants for BSc Single Honours Psychology and BSc Single Honours Psychology with Professional Placement seeking deferred entry using the same criteria as those seeking entry in that year. Application is made through UCAS in the usual way, although the UCAS form should be amended clearly to show the intention to defer.
