    HI,
    Ive applied for university this year to study journalism at Sheffield university. However just recently i decided i would now like to study philosophy instead and take a gap year. But i am unsure what to do with my UCAS application, do i just defer a year or do I cancel my application and reapply next year? Or something else?

    Thanks!

    You can't defer AND reapply for different courses so you'd be best just withdrawing.

    If you're sure then do this ASAP so that your uni can give your place to someone else this year (never hurts to get some good karma!)
