Deferring issues

I want to defer a year. What will the uni I applied to accept as a valid reason for deferring, and let me keep my place?
Answered by Alison Patterson

You need to contact the university. They are under no obligation to convert your offer but the only way you'll find out is to phone/email them. Be truthful with them, though they don't need an explanation of your reasons.

Best of luck,
