Deferring a Place

WIT will consider sympathetically requests from applicants, who, having been successful in gaining a place in the Institute, decide that they wish to defer their entry until the following year.

Deferrals will be subject to the Institute offering the course in the year the applicant proposes to enter the Institute and applicants should also note that a grant offered in the current year might not be available in the year of commencing studies.

WIT will not allow any applicant to hold either:

  • more than one deferral, or

  • a deferral and an acceptance in any given year
