If you applied through QTAC to commence a program in Semester 1, you can delay the commencement of your program (i.e. to delay your first day in a program) for up to one year.
Offers for mid-year entry (i.e. Semester 2 entry) cannot be deferred.
You are eligible to defer if you have:
Respond to your offer through QTAC by the specified due date and indicate your intention to defer. More information is available on the QTAC website.
After you have responded to your offer, you will receive a confirmation from the University in March during the first year of your deferment.
It is important that you do not enrol (i.e. add courses) until you are ready to commence your studies after your period of deferment.
If you have already accepted your offer but now wish to defer, please contact Admissions on 07 3365 2203 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Note, if classes have commenced it is too late to defer.
If you have deferred your studies you are not officially a UQ student. This means you cannot:
Your deferred offer will be cancelled if you enrol in a program or another higher level course at a tertiary institution (including UQ) during the deferment period.
If the University discontinues your program during the deferment period, you may be unable to commence studies in the deferred program. UQ will write to you advising alternative study options; however, you will have to re-apply through QTAC.
In order to take up your deferred place, you are required to enrol (i.e. add at least one course) by early December, as per the instructions outlined in your deferment email. Enrolments will open in mySI-net in mid-November each year.
Please note that completing tasks listed under mySI-Net Tasks is not the same as enrolling in a course.
If you deferred an offer before 2016, a two-year deferment period may still apply. For more information, please contact Admissions on (07) 3365 2203 or email email@example.com.
If you cannot remember or locate your UQ username and password, please contact Information Technology Services.
Your deferred offer will be cancelled if you do not enrol in at least one course by the specified due date.
