Transferring to York St John University
We are happy to consider applicants who want to join our courses in the second or third year.
You can join any of our undergraduate courses in the second or third year by transferring credits from a different university.
Some courses will need a very close credit match. This is often the case where the course is externally accredited. Externally accredited courses include teacher training courses, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Biomedical Science, Law and Psychology.
There are 2 ways you can transfer credits and join a course. You can transfer through UCAS or you can transfer by applying directly to us.
Transfer through UCAS
You can apply through UCAS using our institution code Y75 YSJ. When applying be sure to set the year of entry to year 2 or year 3 as appropriate.
You should make your application via the UCAS website.
Transfer by applying directly to us
We can accept direct applications if you have not already applied through UCAS for 2020 entry.
Please follow the link to our simple application form, fill in your details and we will quickly get back to you.
What we need
Once we have received your form we will need:
- An official transcript of the modules you have completed so far
- Or, a list of modules you have taken with their titles, credit values and the marks you achieved
To confirm your place we will need:
- A final official transcript from your current university
You do not need to have all of these documents before applying though.
How we process your application
We will check that you have enough credits at the right level.
You need to have 120 credits at year 1 level to join a course in the second year. You will need an additional 120 credits at year 2 level to join a course in the third year.
We will then check whether the modules you have studied are relevant to the course you are transferring onto.
It is important that you have covered similar subjects so that you will not struggle with your new course. We will match the subjects you have studied so far against the course you are applying for.
For some courses that are externally accredited the match will need to be very close. Externally accredited courses include teacher training courses, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Biomedical Science, Law and Psychology.
Our team are here to help and can explain the process further.
