Staffordshire University has some of the best courses in the UK and has Gold Teaching Excellence Framework status, but we want you to be sure that this is the right thing for you. So, do some research, does the University offer the course and modules you are looking for? Can you travel here easily by car or public transport (hint we are right next to a main line train station!) and if you are looking to find term time accommodation, what are you looking for and how much can you afford?
Remember, if you are a student supported by student loans you need to talk to the Student Loan Company. It is important to understand if you are still able to get loans if you transfer and how long they will fund you for. It is your responsibility to ensure you can pay your tuition fees and that you have money to support yourself through your study.
If you are an International student, you need to talk to your institution's International team as your UK visa is based on where you study. Don’t worry, this can be changed but you need to ensure everyone knows what you are planning and has agreed to the transfer.
If moving is the right thing for you then you will need to contact our admissions team through email@example.com and they will be able to work with the subject area to see if your previous study meets our entry requirements. We will consider your credit earned at a Higher Education level or your previous qualifications, depending on what course you want to join and what course you have been studying.
You might be considering transferring from your current university or college onto a course in the same or related subject area at Staffordshire University. If this is the case we will ask you to provide certification or confirmation (from where you are studying at the moment) to show what you have achieved already and, provided you have sufficient and appropriate credit, we will work with you to bring you in at the right level of study. An example of this type of transfer is if you have, or plan to, finish your first year at your current institution but want to start on a second year of study at Staffordshire University; this is sometimes called “Advance Standing”. If you have done some but not all of the year you may be able to use our Recognition of Prior Learning process so that you don’t have to repeat what you have already achieved. Although each case can be different, the credits required for different awards and levels are displayed online as a general guide.
If you’re studying a Staffordshire University award at one of our partners, we will have records of your achievement, but you should follow the same guidance above to ensure a move is right for you.
All of our admissions process work within the principles and process outlined in our Admissions Policy.
