Transferring from another institution
The most common reason for transferring studies is the appointment of a Supervisor to a post at Exeter. If this is the case the student needs to make it clear in their application and give the name of the supervisor. Since there is continuity of supervision, it is normal for us to count all of the previous study at the other institution towards the qualification for which s/he will be registered at Exeter.
In the student is requesting a transfer for another reason the Department will need to assure itself that the reason is valid, that the studies undertaken to date satisfy the normal progression expectations of our own students and that there are no issues at the current institution which would not permit a transfer. The student should also provide a rationale for the request. Approval for the transfer should be given before the student completes an application. No reduction of study will be normally be approved but the student may request early submission after s/he has settled at Exeter and the College is happy with the student’s academic performance.
