What should I do if I choose to defer my offer?

Deferral requests made after the registration start date of the year will no longer be considered. Applicants must make their request to defer before the registration start date during the admissions cycle. Students can apply for a deferral by contacting Admissions Office with details of offer holders requesting deferrals. Deferral requests can only be made once and will be approved at the discretion of the academic school or department. The maximum period allowed for deferral is one academic year. Please note that the academic qualifications must be valid at applicants’ revised start date. For offer holders whose first language isn’t English, the English Language qualifications/tests must also be valid at the revised start date.

Applicants whose request to defer is approved, will be asked to confirm that they still intend to take up their place and for an update on certain personal details, closer to the start of their course, (for a September entry course, we will contact all applicants before the end of March).
