NB! Requests for two years of deferment will only be considered if accompanied by documentation supporting the need for a two-year deferment.

Please note that it is not possible to apply for deferment if your admission offer is conditional.

Answer to the application

Study offer deferred from last year?

If you had your study offer deferred last year, you are guaranteed admission this year as long as you apply for admission and accept the study offer within the deadline.

Leave of absence

In case of long-term illness, pregnancy or summons to Military Service in the course of your studies, please apply for a leave of absence instead of a deferment of your study offer.
