Can you defer NFTS entry?

Hi,

I just wondered if anyone knew of any scenario where NFTS had allowed entry deferral?

I know that they state on their website that it generally isn’t allowed but wondered if they were ever flexible.

(For context, I’m having difficulty predicting the future due to Covid both financially and otherwise and whilst I would ideally love to go in 2022, I recognise it is possible that I might have to wait until 2023. I would hate to waste a year if 2022 ended up being a viable option so trying to figure out the best way forward given how far in advance you need to apply. I do realise this also completely depends on the big *if* I even managed to get in.)

Hi, as I know they mentioned in their regulations that there are no deferral options for students who got an offer, and one of my classmates asked them the same thing but they didn't accept. But if you're looking to be an exception, better to ask them. maybe they are more flexible due to the pandemic and its lasting. Best of luck. 🤞
