The normal procedure, should you wish to delay taking up your clinical place, is to apply for admission in the normal way during your final pre-clinical year.  We are happy to consider deferral requests, but prefer to know about them in advance so that we can adjust the number of places we offer.  If you are thinking about deferring, you should discuss your plans at interview. You should then write to the Director of Clinical Studies to request permission to defer your entry after you have been offered a place.
