    Here's my situation:

    Fed up with job of 10 years so thought about career change.

    Applied for MSc Computer Science at UCL expecting to hear back after 6 weeks.

    Heard nothing so started applying for other jobs. I've now got a different job (it was a lot easier than I thought).

    12 weeks after applying I've now got an unconditional offer from UCL.

    What I'd like to do is defer until next year to give my new job a chance but if I really like my new job I'll not want to do Masters.

    If I defer will I be able to pull out later next year if I decide not to do it or will I then owe the £10k fee?

    The only point at which you commit to a course, is when you enrol and pay fees at the start of the academic year. Unless UCL have t&cs which are out if the ordinary, you should be fine to defer for a year then decline the place, without being left with any kind of financial commitment.
