Students can apply to defer commencement of their course, for up to one year, at the time of responding to their offer.

Due dates A deferred place will lapse if the student does not complete enrolment requirements by the date specified in the ‘Return from Deferment’ letter sent in October/November each year.

No tertiary study while on deferment Students are unable to hold a deferred place if they are undertaking study at an alternate tertiary institution during that period.

Scholarships Students who were offered a scholarship may be unable to hold the scholarship while on deferment. Please check the scholarship status with the relevant scholarship officer.
