    I'm 19 took a gap year last year when i finished my A levels at 18, asked the uni last year for a gap year and they said it was ok and that they'll save my placement for a year , now i'm back to the country, i'm suppose to start uni this september , but something popped up and i need another gap year before i go to uni.

    In this case will my uni allow me to take another year off ? will they save my placement for another year? will they wait for two years? Basically taking a 2 year gap, is it permissible throughout universities? i still haven't contacted my uni.

    I know people that have taken two, although i'm not sure the uni kept their space for that long or if they applied later.

    is it better off going to the uni so they can actually see me in person. then tell them.

    or a phone call and email is enough.??

    would they ask for a reason for going off for another year?

    What is the exact reason for taking another gap year? This may affect the response.

    It might be a personal reason for the OP and the university to know, in which case that is absolutely none of your business.
