It's about eye care and treating eye disorders, when you go to the opticians this is the degree that they would have had to do

maybe talk to your uni to discuss about deferring your place or studies.

I would say if you really want a gap year then contact your university about it. I'm sure they'll be happy to help

I would say, it's worth a shot in contacting. Also, the gap year is for you, not your parents and ultimately it's your future that your trying to improve, so I would say if you really want it go for it!

I'm going to defer and offer and try and get a job at my local book shop
I want to spend the year reading around my subject and working on some machine learning projects. Also my family is moving countries in a couple years so I want an opportunity to spend some time with them before that happens.

Also I want to re-apply to Ox / St.A but the uni I have an offer from (Glasgow) looks quite nice so I won't be devastated if I dont get in to Ox / St.A again

Thank you ^_^ It's more programming and CS but yeah I think Engineer is the title given to a lot of ppl who work on ML systems. I'm not doing any big project though, just a few things with friends and some pet projects to do with reinforcement learning

I don't think you can apply again to other unis if you are holding a deferred offer.
