You are here:
For many of our undergraduate courses, you can choose to take a year off before you start university by deferring your QTAC offer.
If you have been offered a place in a course, but have not started, you can apply to postpone the start of your studies by emailing International Admissions.
You may be able to defer your offer if you've applied through QTAC and been offered a place in one of our undergraduate courses.
Check your course information to find out if deferring is an option for your course.
Deferring may mean that you won't be able to hold a scholarship you've applied for.
Make sure you check the conditions of your scholarship.
You defer your offer through QTAC's online services portal.
When you receive your QTAC offer, it will tell you when you have to respond by and how to respond.
You can request deferment after your offer response date by calling QTAC on 1300 GO QTAC (1300 467 822).
We'll consider late requests until the last date to request deferment for the semester you’re due to start studying, which is also the census date of the semester.
Check the QTAC deferment dates to find the last date to request deferment for the semester you’re due to start.
If you've already enrolled in any units, you'll have to withdraw from them. This may affect your grades or fees.
Deferment request outcomes are displayed in the QTAC Online Services portal.
If your deferment is approved at QTAC, we'll email you to let you know by no later than mid-March for Semester 1 or mid-August for Semester 2, after the final round of QTAC offers and the last day to enrol at QUT.
If you've submitted a late request for deferment, we'll contact you in early April for Semester 1 or late August for Semester 2.
Check the QTAC deferment dates to find out when we send deferment confirmations for the semester and offer round that's relevant to you.
By default, your deferment will last for 12 months.
You can request to defer for 6, 18 or 24 months instead by emailing our deferment team by the relevant closing date.
Check the QTAC deferment dates for the semester your deferment is supposed to finish to find the due date for requests to extend your deferment or to return early from deferment.
We'll approve your request as long as your course is:
Check your course information for up-to-date information.
You cannot hold a deferred place at QUT whilst being enrolled or on leave of absence at QUT.
Tell us if your email address changes, by emailing our deferment team. We'll use your personal email address, not your QUT student email address, for all communication about your deferment.
As part of regular course development and quality assurance, we may:
We'll email you several months before orientation and the start of classes to invite you to take up your deferred offer. The invitation will come to you from QUT and not QTAC.
Check the QTAC deferment dates for the semester your deferment is due to finish to find the dates we release offers for students returning from deferment.
You must enrol according to the details in this offer.
We email your offer letter to you. If you can't find your offer in your inbox, make sure you check your junk mailbox.
If you can't find your offer or you've deleted it, contact our IT HelpDesk to get a copy of your QUT username and password. Once you've activated your student account online, you'll be able to view your offer letter via e-Student.
