If I cannot take up my offer of a place this year, can I defer it to next year?
Offers can usually only be deferred if all Departmental and College conditions have been met.
In addition, if unforeseen and unforeseeable circumstances that are outside your control will prevent you from taking up your offer on the start date indicated in your offer then a deferral may be granted. This might include, for example, ill health or bereavement. In some instances, deferrals can also be requested because of visa application issues
