Hey I deferred a uni place but UCAS says I am committing to attend? Is this true? A lot can change in a year that may make me not want to go to uni, so I'd rather no be forced to go if thats the case.
You are not committed unless you formally enrol, (usually a month or so ahead of course start). If your circumstances change and you want to reapply to other choices, you will need to get the uni to release you so you can submit a new app.
Its the final step where you confirm that you will be taking up the place. Nowadays it’s mostly online. The uni will send you an invitation to confirm your details and formally register on the course. You’ll also get IT access and an ID card etc.
