    Hey! So I want to apply to do the Modern and Medieval languages course at Cambridge University and I've always been certain that I would take a year out and then go to uni.

    But lately my excitement to do even more german has grown and grown and now I'm really not sure if I want deferred entry or not.

    Does anyone know if I applied for deferred entry for this course (I would spend a large chunk of this year out in Germany practicing my language) whether i'd be at all disadvantaging myself?

    Also if I applied to a uni for normal entry and got accepted (slightly hopeful), is there anyway you can defer your entry then if you change your mind about about the timing and really feel like you need a year out?


    You certainly wouldn't disadvantage yourself if you applied for a deferred entry. Cambridge encourages prospective MML students to take a gap year. If you applied for the 2017 entry and got in, you could then ask that your offer be deferred - I don't think Cambridge would mind, but you should speak to the MML dept/college admissions tutors to be sure.
