Deferred Entry

If you wish to defer your entry for a year to work in industry, travel or do community service then we encourage this and applications are considered in the same way as applications without deferred entry.

It is also possible to apply after you have obtained your A-levels or other qualifications and when you are on your gap year (we do not interview candidates).
