Students who have applied for one or more of the Health Sciences Undergraduate Professional Programmes (HSUPP) but are unable to commence their studies in the upcoming academic year are able to request a deferral. Requests for deferral will be considered only on the basis of unforeseen serious medical grounds or other exceptional circumstances that arise after the application deadline. For deferral to be approved, evidence must be provided showing that the applicant will be able to resume study the following year.
