I have a friend who has asked me if it is possible to transfer between colleges in second year. I don’t want to sound stupid and say I don’t know so please help me! Is it possible to transfer between colleges in second year?
A Good Friend
You are a good friend! Askastudent however is a lousy friend because I am sorry for the delay with this question.
The short of it is that you can of course, apply to transfer colleges in second year but there are no guarantees. If you want to transfer colleges, you will have to write to the registrar of the College Of Your Choice, a commanding, eloquent letter that states your case of why you have to be at New College or you will simply die! Make it dramatic! Talk about how inspiring the Spring Rolls kiosk is in the Sid Smith cafeteria and why you love their unflattering lighting!
Basically make it sound like you would contribute to their college life and make a convincing argument as to why you need to transfer colleges now. There are no guarantees, but your friend might as well try it, right? Registrar contact info can be found on each of the colleges websites. If you want Aska to write the letter, I charge a fee. (Or you can pay me in almond croissants from Harbord Bakery.)
