    Hi! I was just wondering if it was still possible to differ a university offer for a year even after I have applied through UCAS.

    Currently I have received replies from 4 out of 5 of my courses (I was thinking of withdrawing my 5th application) 3 of which where successful conditional offers that I have a strong feeling that I will be able to achieve.

    However since stating on my application that I would not wish to differ my offer, I now feel like I would like to take a gap year and was wondering if this was still possible while keeping the offer for at least my firm choice.

    Any advice on what to do in my gap year is also welcome, thank you

    As above, yes it's possible. If you email, spell the word 'defer' though!

    My daughter has recently decided she wants a rest from studying. She had decided her firm and insurance so spoke to both uni's about deferring they both agreed she could. UCAS updated today with her two choices starting 2017.
