Options for transferring
Midlands Credit Compass
Coventry University is part of Midlands Enterprise Universities (MEU), a partnership of six universities that strive for excellence in teaching, research, and student satisfaction. MEU has created the Midlands Credit Compass, which supports students transferring within the six universities and encourages lifelong learning if you would like to return to studying in the Midlands after a break.
Members of the Midlands Credit Compass group include:
- Birmingham City University
- Coventry University
- University of Derby
- University of Lincoln
- Nottingham Trent University
- University of Wolverhampton
The Midlands Credit Compass offers a dedicated service that will guide you through the transfer process to a partner university. For more information, visit the Midlands Credit Compass website.
Transferring to Coventry University from a university outside the Midlands Credit Compass group
If you are looking to transfer to Coventry University, then the first port of call after you have confirmed your transcript and credits with your current university is to contact our Admissions team. They will be able to advise whether there is space on the course and whether we will be able to accept transfers with the credits gained from your current course.
Looking to transfer from Coventry University to another United Kingdom university?
If you are thinking of transferring to any other Higher Education Institute, your first step should be to contact the university that you are considering applying to and asking whether they have a space and will accept transfers with credits gained form your current course.
It is more likely that they will accept your credits if you are transferring to the same or a similar course. If they won’t, you may need to start from year one again, which might have funding implications for you – your student loan company will be able to advise:
- Student Finance England
- Student Finance Wales
- Student Finance Northern Ireland
- Student Awards Agency Scotland
Once you have identified the course that you would like to transfer to, it is likely that you will have to apply through UCAS, and your new institution will be able to advise you further about this process.
If you are studying on a Tier 4 visa, you must discuss any plans you have to withdraw from your course or to apply to study at another United Kingdom university with the Tier 4 compliance advisors immediately.
