Making the most of your deferred year before joining the University Making the most of your deferred year before joining the University

A year between school or college and university can be of substantial benefit to the maturity and motivation of students and we welcome deferred entry applications.
We also encourage you to make full use of the deferred year, whether that involves travelling, gaining experience in your chosen subject, or taking the opportunity to earn some money. Admissions officers will wish to see that you have made constructive use of your time.

Candidates for deferred entry should choose the correct year of entry on the UCAS online application.
