I'm planning on studying a masters in Physician Associate at Bolton University and the UCAS deadline is on 25th January 2023 . However, on the UCAS application form, there's an option to select either September 2023 or September 2024. If I select September 2024, would this be a "deferred entry"? Would this mean I would be applying in the next application cycle instead of this years? If so would I have to contact the uni about this first before I send my application? My other choice is Manchester and the entry for that is February 2024, would it also affect this choice?
