    Hi,
    I deferred my entry to University for 2017 in order to have a gap year, but one of my University choices declined me because they do not accept deferred entry's (which they did not put in their prospectus or on their website) . I would like to study Primary Education with QTS at Uni.
    If I withdrew my application, would the other Uni's reject me next year or would they still 'look on me favorably'?
    Thank you

    Withdrawing your application won't make unis reject you (unless you tell them you're withdrawing by scratching your ucas ID into the admission tutor's car...). You're not guaranteed to be accepted again, as unis sometimes find an increase in applications or decide to ask for higher grades. So before sending the new application you should check you'll still meet their requirements.

    Hi,

    If you have places in some of the universities you applied for a place, then I think that you should request a deferral in the first instance. You should contact them and explain the situation, if they are happy with you deferring your place, then do so. If not, then ask for details about reapplying next year

    The University may have similar conditions to this year and you may be admitted again or they may change their conditions to suit the change in application and you may be unsuccessful. So you have to know this situation because nothing is guaranteed.

    I think the best approach will be to seek a deferral from the University that you want to go to the most out of the ones that have accepted you. This will eliminate any future changes and you will be confident that you will be enrolling next year.

    Good luck.
