Transferring Faculties
What is the average required to transfer from Eng to life sci? After transferring do you start at level 1 life sci? Is there a deadline coming up to apply for transfers?

I'm not entirely sure, but I think the average required to transfer into a program is the same as entering the program normally.

For Hons. Life Sci (4 yrs), the entrance average to Level II is 6.0. The requirements for entry are here: /calen...nt/pg1957.html . I believe that if you have most or all of the prereqs (there really aren't a lot), you should be able to transfer directly into Level II, and possibly make up any missing credits in summer school.

I recommend talking to your academic advisors. When I switched from Psychology into Philosophy they really helped me out a lot and gave a ton of advice. Then when I switched from BA Phil to Combined Hons Phil and Rel Stud they were still just as great and supportive and told me all of the information I could possibly need.
