Gap Year – Applying for Uni – Scholarships
Students planning on taking a gap year should apply for university this year and if accepted into a course they can then apply for deferment for 12 months.
Some universities will allow you to apply for scholarships in 2017 ready to start in 2018 but others only accept scholarship applications from current Year 12 students so you would need to apply now and then defer your scholarship as well as your course. Consider the scholarships that you would like to apply for and contact the institutions to ask if you need to apply this year or next.
