How do I apply to defer my studies?
If you wish to apply to defer the start of your studies, you must first of all accept your place in the study programme. You do this on universityadmissions.se. However, you should not register for the study programme. If you are required to pay a fee for your studies, you must also pay the fee before you apply for deferment. Then follow these steps:
- Complete and sign the form.
- Describe in a letter why you cannot start your study programme.
- Attach documents that support the reasons you state in your letter.
- Send the form, your letter, and certificates to:
University of Gothenburg
SE-405 30 Göteborg
Or in scanned form via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your application and the attachments you include are registered. This means that your application becomes a public document that is stored at the University of Gothenburg.
