    In a bit of a complicated situation but basically it's looking very unlikely I'm going to be well enough to go to uni this year and trying to work out what my options are. I originally applied for 2014 entry which I then deferred to 2015 but didn't get the grades for, and my insurance wouldn't let me defer. I made a new application for 2015 entry which last August I had to defer to this year, I love the uni and want to go and things but my health has only got worse so unless a miracle happens between now and September I'm not going to manage it. Obviously I need to speak to the uni and there's always open university etc, but from a UCAS perspective would I be able to defer another year without having to apply again?

    Hope that makes some sort of sense, thanks!

    It would be up to the university and nothing to do with ucas as far as I know Its up to you and how you feel about your health really but have you spoken to your firms student support team to see if they can put anything in place that would make it possible for you to attend this year, there is only so much they can do but there's no harm in asking

    Thank you! I haven't yet, I will do but most of the time at the minute I'd struggle to even look after myself tbh and as you say there's only so much they can do. For the moment it seems like I just need to try and do what I can in the next couple of months and see where I am then, it's driving me mad not knowing what I'm doing though and people keep asking me

    Just see how it goes in the next couple of months, I mean transfers arent necessarily always possible (and it really depends on the course and things) but if your health improved enough to attend uni (there's many types of non medical help dsa could provide you, in some cases a notetaker may be able to go to a lecture for you when you are unwell for example) but not to leave home, you could always do year 1 at a uni near home or with OU and then get a second year entry transfers. Although there's no guarantee that would definitely be possible, but i think it's worth looking to if in a couple of months you feel you aren't able to leave home.

    Unfortunately I live in the middle of nowhere and the nearest uni doing my course is over an hour away so OU is possibly my best option. I had wanted to try a brick uni first but for the sake of not making myself even worse it's probably not worth it, at least not until I'm a lot better. I'll see how things work out anyway- thank you!
