Changing Degrees

If things are not going well with your course, you may consider changing your degree programme. As most degrees have core modules, it is not always possible to change degrees part way through an academic year.

You should discuss your proposed course of action with your Programme Lead or the Director of Undergraduate Studies.

If you are hoping to change degrees then you should:

  1. Speak to your Personal Tutor
  2. Speak to the department whose degree you are hoping to join, to see whether the change is possible. If you are transferring to a different degree within SEAS, you will need to discuss this with the Senior Tutor.
  3. If the change is agreed, you should contact seas@sheffield.ac.uk. One of the team can help you with the required paperwork.
  4. Once you have completed the form, the Director of Undergraduate Studies and your new department(s) (if applicable) will need to sign your form to approve the change.
