    I applied to university last year and got a place but deferred my offer till 13/14 because i decided to take a gap year and work.

    I have accepted my deferred place but am unsure whether to actually go, or continue with my job and try to progress in that way.

    My query is will i be able continue with my job despite having accepted my place?

    any help is appreciated

    I guess if you are able to fit your job around your course and not the other way around it would be possible.

    If you don't want to go to University, you don't have to go. You can withdraw your application.

    If you want to work and do university, you can try and do the degree part time instead.

    Many students work part-time while they are doing a full-time undergraduate course, but it can be tough. Some unis do offer part-time options for people who are working, but they are relatively few and far between.

    You will be expected to attend tutorials, seminars and even lectures during the day. Depending on your course, you may also have other commitments to meet, which would not sit well with working more than part-time. Your best bet is to consider the demands of the course you have signed up for, and the opportunities completing the course is likely to open up for you. You do not have to go to university now, and if you aren't sure that you really do want to do this particular course at this particular time, it might be a very good move to postpone university until you are certain of what you want to do. You only get one lot of student loans so making a mistake can be really expensive in the long run.

    No University can 'make' you walk through the door if you no longer want to go.

    Phone them up and tell you have found a job and changed your mind about Uni.
