How to defer your offer
If you accept an offer from UON, you may be able to delay the start date of your degree by up to one year.
Some degrees don't allow you to defer. There are also additional requirements if you want to defer a Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine or Bachelor of Midwifery. If you have previously deferred a degree offer, you are not eligible to apply for another deferment of the same degree. Carefully check the details in your offer.
