3.16. Applicants requesting deferred entry

3.16.1 We recognise the advantages that some students can gain from a ‘gap year’, and our Admissions staff will be happy to discuss deferred entry with you. If you wish to apply for deferred entry this can be done either at point of application, or a request can be made at any point throughout your application process until the point of enrolment. It is also recommended that you outline briefly on your personal statement your reason(s) for choosing deferred entry.

3.16.2 You will usually be considered on the same basis as applicants in the year that you are applying for entry, unless there is a dramatic change in criteria in which case you will be assessed against the criteria for the year you would enter. An offer made in Clearing is valid for the current year only, unless the applicant has met the standard entry requirement for the following year.

3.16.3 Applicants will normally be allowed to defer entry for two years only, before they must submit a new application to be considered along with the new cohort of applicants
