So I'm actually studying and completing my A2 exams, and honestly I don't think I'll get the AAB i need for Ulster. But I actually am seriously considering a gap year, and maybe even going with a gap year company to actually find a job teaching english abroad to earn some money and improve my CV.

Hence I was wandering if I some how met the conditions of my firm AAB, or my insurance at Stirling BBC: could I actually reject my offers and simply apply again next year?

I am also considering applying abroad to the Netherlands, as i had begun but withdrew my application from stress this year. I am also considering applying to some Asian universities.

So may questions are again:
1) is it possible for me to reject my current offers after results this year and reapply next year/and or can i simply defer an offer

2) Will universities frown upon the fact that I took a gap year, even if it is to learn a language (i.e. Korean), or to teach english abroad for a year after college?

3) If you know anything about applying to universities in the Netherlands, or Asia, or even anywhere else in the EU. Could you please help me?



Sorry for rambling on, but I'm really reconsidering my path. I am going to university, but there are other things I just want to try first: especially if I end up leaving NI, as taking a gap year will help improve my CV for jobs in a different market, and will give me greater financial stability.

Thanks again guys!!!!

If you've already accepted your offer and you meet the conditions, then no, it is not possible to un-accept. If you've not accepted yet, then you can simply reject them. If you have accepted and really do want to withdraw your application, you may be able to do so, but you'll need to speak to the university directly, as opposed to going through UCAS.

Depends on the university/course I suppose, but generally, no. If you do a gap year and do nothing, it would, but from my understanding, if you take a gap year and do something to better yourself or do something interesting, it can enhance your application and it'll be a talking point during your interview. They'll probably ask you about your gap year.
