Postgraduate Deferrals



Applying for a One-Year Deferral


To apply for a one-year deferral applicants must, in the first instance, have accepted their offer of a place through the UCC application portal and must have met all offer conditions. 

If there is a programme deposit required on acceptance of a full offer this must be paid. The programme deposit will be transferred to the following year if your deferral is granted.


Applicants wishing to defer their place must complete the Deferral Application Form and pay a non-refundable administrative fee of €50.00 

3.  Applications for deferrals for medical reasons must be accompanied by medical certification.
4. Deferral requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis and may be subject to quotas.   
5. Deferral requests will only be considered prior to registration.
