I have applied for 2010 entry and have one offer and a few interviews....
suddenly now I am thinking about taking a gap year.
Thing is, I dont want to go through the whole UCAS process again next year (having to write a personal statement, attend interviews!)
Has anybody rung up a university, AFTER getting an offer and asked if they could infact start a year later?
Could I also, at my upcoming interviews say at the end of the interview "could you also accept me for 2011 entry?" - or not?
I would rather start in 2010 then apply again, but deferring the place would be fab.
Thanks for all your help xxx
You just need to contact unis and ask if they can defer your offer. If you have any plans then include those. Even if you just have a vague idea you need to include something, such as you're intending to work or to travel.
