Changing university

Is it possible to change university after starting first year? Do you need to reapply trough ucas? If I'm not sure of my university choice (I've already applied but I've changed my mind, but now it's too late to accept my insurance choice), what is the best thing I can do at this stage?

You can also re-apply through UCAS for 2017 entry of course.

Best of luck!
