How do I defer my offer?


Congratulations on your acceptance to study at the University of Canberra. We understand that sometimes a deferral may be required. Please be aware though that some courses are not available for deferral. A list of courses that are not available for deferral can be found under the deferral guidelines.

Domestic Students

If you are a domestic student and would like to defer your offer, you will need to submit a deferral form. Please ensure you have read and understood the deferral guidelines before submitting your deferral.

If you have already accepted your offer but wish to defer commencing your course, please email deferrals@canberra.edu.au with the following information:

  • full name
  • course name and course code
  • date of birth
  • a clear statement of the teaching period you wish to commence your studies (please note this is subject to course availability).

You will be emailed a new offer closer to the new commencement date of your course (approximately 3 months prior to your new start date). Your new offer letter will outline how to accept your offer; however please ensure that your email and postal address remain up-to-date. If, for some reason your deferral cannot be processed, you will be contacted by the University.

If you are a current student and wish to take a break from your studies, you will need to submit an Intermission/Leave of Absence Form (LOA) to the Student Centre.
International Students

If you are an international student and wish to change your start date, you will need to email and request a 'revised offer' from the International Admissions Office. As deferring your studies will affect your course commencement date and your confirmation of enrolment (CoE), you will need to have revised documents sent in order to apply for your student visa.

When submitting your request, please ensure you include the following information:

  • full name
  • course name and course code
  • date of birth
  • a clear statement of the teaching period you wish to commence your studies (please note this is subject to course availability).

Once your request has been processed by the International Admissions Office, you will be emailed with your revised offer and new confirmation of enrolment.
