I am an international student. I wish to defer my offer into a degree program. What should I do?

If you have been made an offer into a degree program and have not yet commenced study with Griffith University, you may apply to defer the start of your program.

Deferral may not be available in programs where admission is based on special selection criteria. You should check the Degree and career finder website to see if there are any special selection criteria for your program:

1. Search for your degree program
2. Personalise by 'International'
3. Click 'Apply'
4. See 'Entry requirements' to check if a deferral is not permitted.

 

If you applied via an agent, you should ask them to submit your deferral request to the University on your behalf.

If you applied direct via our online application system and deferral is available for your program:
1. Login to online application system
2. Open your application and select 'Respond to Offer'
3. Select 'Defer Offer'
4. Enter the new trimester intake
5. Upload any additional documents or provide comments to support your request
6. Select 'Defer Offer' to finalise your request
7. Your Admissions Officer will assess the deferral request and contact you with an outcome as soon as possible.
If you applied direct via the International Online Application System, but your application is still under assessment and deferral is available for your program:
1. Login to online application system
2. Open your application
3. Select 'Send Message'
4. Request the deferral from your Admissions Officer via the email message including details of the new trimester intake
5. Your Admissions Officer will assess the deferral request and contact you with an outcome as soon as possible.

If you applied direct, but not via the International Online Application System and deferral is available for your program, please email the Admissions Officer who issued your existing offer letter with the following details:

  • your Griffith ID
  • your full name
  • your date of birth
  • the trimester and year that you would like to commence
  • the reasons why you would like to defer your commencement
  • your current location: onshore in Australia or in your home country

Your Admissions Officer may request additional information to finalise your request.
