Published: 11 June 2020

It is understandable that making a decision is hard at the moment and we know that some applicants are considering having a year off before taking up their place at university. Deferral may be possible, but the majority of students have indicated they are keen to begin their studies this September. In some cases, it might be possible to start your studies later in 2020 to avoid losing a year. Options include being flexible on your start date, allowing you to change your mind on your start date, or – for international students – enabling you to study initially online from your home country, so you can delay travel by a few weeks.
