FAQ: Can I delay my university start date?

Can I delay my university start date?

Delaying admission to the university is known as deferring a university place. Deferring your entry to university by term or academic year, only if the university accepts your deferral request. You can also withdraw your submission and re-apply the next year, but UCAS will want an explanation for this.
