+Am I guaranteed a place on my postgraduate taught programme if I request a deferral?

If you need to defer specifically due to issues relating to Covid-19 you will receive a new offer for 2021 entry when the new application cycle opens in September 2020, even if any entry criteria changes would normally mean that you would not be eligible. However, some conditions of your offer may change, for example English Language may be added as a condition to your offer if your original IELTS/TOEFL result has expired.
