So I’m going into my second year of a science btec at college and then I want to take two gap years (one to work and save for a language school in Japan aswell as volunteer and do physiotherapy work experience, as that is the university course I want to choose and then the second year I will be living abroad). Do i still apply for physiotherapy in uni this year? and say i want to defer for two years? Can i mention my plan in university personal statement? So sorry for how long this was and I hope it’s clear 😅

Hi! kaiya_e

Your plan for your gap years sounds amazing!

You could always plan now your personal statement, so you can get all the help from your teachers. However, most universities only allow you to defer for one year, so you might have to apply next year officially. However, you could always contact the universities that you're interested in and ask if they would allow you to defer for 2 years. Especially as one of your years will be so beneficial for your course, as its work experience.

I hope this helps!
Best wishes

Take one gap year then apply for deferred entry in the following application cycle. If you get offers you'll have less to worry about during your second gap year.
