Can I defer my application to another year?

If you are thinking of deferring then please contact our Admissions Team at or call 01204 903 394. Please providing your provisional student ID or UCAS personal ID. Deferrals are considered on a case-by-case basis as each course is different. We will be happy to talk to you about your options and we may ask you to talk to the programme leader who can best advise about the course. Please visit our Subject Areas pages to find details about your course of interest and contact details for the programme leader.

You can find out more about our application and admissions processes at our Application and Admissions page. Alternatively, you can call us on 01204 903 394 or email

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
