To reduce the probability of typos please use aliases:
update i13stud
set ims = i13istud.ims
from ind13.dbo.mstmassstudents i13stud
inner join ind13i.dbo.mstmassstudents i13istud on
i13stud.uid = i13istud.uid
and i13stud.subjectcode  = i13istud.subjectcode 
and i13stud.course  = i13istud.course
and i13stud.semester  = i13istud.semester 

Open in new window

If that still does not work, provide the error message, please.
