Gap years and deferred entry

Most Manchester degree programmes are happy to accept applications from students who wish to defer their entry at university by one year.

We particularly appreciate students who have positive plans for a gap year – such as to gain relevant work experience or improve language skills.

We advise students to check with the appropriate academic School prior to making any application (or as soon as they have decided that this is what they wish to do), in order to find out about this increasingly popular option.
