Inter-School/ Faculty Transfer

The Process

You want to Transfer

Career is a life long journey that begins with choosing the course one wishes to study. If you have already been admitted to take a certain course, then it means you have the required qualifications to undertake that course and begin your career journey

There are no good or bad courses. All courses are valuable and solve a certain problem in the society. If you have the necessary intellectual ability required for the course, you can succeed in your chosen course provided:

  1. You have the right/positive attitude towards the course,
  2. You understand yourself,
  3. You have the necessary exposure to the course
  4. You have work and not job mentality
  5. You are committed to study and focused on succeeding

a) Allowing others to choose for you
b) Blindly choosing a course because that is what your friends or relatives have chosen
c) Choosing a course because it is considered prestigious
d) Following opinion of people with little or no knowledge about the course you intend to study
e) Having limited knowledge about the course you intend to study

  1. a). Understand yourself- know your strengths, weaknesses, abilities, talents etc. This will help you enhance your areas of strength as you work on your weaknesses. To understand yourself better you can do a personality test or career test and seek career counseling
  1. b). Be knowledgeable about the course – find out more about the course:

  1. i). What is the course all about/what does the course involve?

  6. v). What are the career growth and progression opportunities in that course?
i) Take your studies seriously-attend all lessons, do assignments, read widely, consult etc.
ii) Look for mentors
iii) Be active in class and group discussions
iv) Join professional body in your field and participate in their seminars, workshops etc. Apart from learning and getting exposure from them, make valuable contribution in your own small way and get meaningful contacts for professional networking
v) Volunteer your services during your free time or holiday to firms related to your course and get practical experience and make yourself visible in the world of work.
vi) Keep yourself updated on the trends in that course/career.
a) Research further from the internet

c) From the department you have been admitted to

NB: Get multiple sources of credible information to have a broader view about the course.
