Many applicants consider taking a year out before starting their studies. There's absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to travel, gaining some work experience or earning a little extra cash before heading off to university.
There are 2 ways that you can take a year out:
Select the option to defer your place when you apply to us through UCAS then explain in your personal statement, your reasons for taking a year out. This will help our admissions tutor decide on whether to offer you a deferred place.
If you choose to defer your application, we will consider your application on its merits and may make you an offer to study your chosen course in the year following the year of your application. There are some points that you should consider:
Your offer will be visible on your UCAS Track
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.
Please contact us if you wish to defer taking up your place once you have accepted your offer for entry into a particular year. We'll give your request all due consideration but can't promise that we'll be able to agree.
You can make an application to study once you have left college or 6th form. 大学本科 applicants from the UK or EU can make an application directly through UCAS.
Bear in mind that if you make your application once you have left school or college you may not have the support of your school or college tutors and it may be difficult to find an appropriate person to write you a reference.
Please also remember that you will need to make yourself available for an interview during the application process should your chosen course require it. Not the easiest thing to do if you're backpacking in Thailand.
