No, you will not be able to apply for deferred entry through UCAS.

Students who are holding an offer may still apply to defer their offer to the following year, on grounds of unforeseen mitigating circumstances (e.g. illness).

If you have exceptional personal circumstances for which you would seek deferred entry, please note these on the Oxford Application Form. If you are shortlisted for interview and to be made an offer, these circumstances will be considered at the offer-making stage.

Examples of some exceptional personal circumstances which are likely to be considered include a planned course of medical treatment or participation in an international sports event which would preclude you being able to participate in the admissions process in the autumn/winter before you wish to the start the course – other exceptional circumstances will be considered. Please note that completion of a current or subsequent programme of study would not be considered reasonable grounds for deferral.
