Building in Christ'sThis page is to support students holding an offer for 2025 or 2026 entry. It is part of the offer-holders section.

Congratulations on your offer! For deferred entry offer holders, there is more than a year between receiving your offer in mid-January and starting your course at Christ's.

When you are reading the offer holders section, note that since yours is a deferred offer, some of the information in the section relates to this year and some of the information will be about things that you do next year (and if your offer is for 2026 entry, some will even be about things you do the year after!). This dedicated page for deferred entry offer holders should help clarify when you need to do things.


In the year you receive your offer

When reading the dates and deadlines page, note that the deadlines which you need to meet in the year you receive your offer are as follows:

NB. The full offer holders section is published in mid-January each year so once you've done the things above, note that between September and January, some pages may not be available to you. 

From January of the year you start your course

We will update the offer holders section for your entry year and email you in the second half of January of the year you are due to start at Christ's. The email we send will be an update on your offer, now including financial information for your entry year, the new Terms of Admissions, and we will remind you that you must now meet the remaining deadlines listed on the dates and deadlines page from January to August in the year before you are due to start at Christ's, in particular:

If your year of entry needs updating with UCAS

  • Most deferred offer holders are given their deferred offer in January. Your UCAS account will then display the correct entry year by the end of January. Therefore the following points will not apply to you.
  • If the Director of Admissions has agreed to change your entry year in the time since we made the offer in January, then once we have processed this, UCAS may contact you to ask you to formally accept a change to your entry year. If they do this, please follow their instructions promptly when asked.
  • Those who need a two-year deferral (for reasons of National Service commitments) will receive a one-year deferred offer via UCAS in the first instance. This is because it's not possible to enter a two-year deferral at UCAS. Please email us in the autumn of the year after you applied to ask us to defer your place for another year. The timeline will look like this:
    • if you applied by 15 October 2023 for entry in 2026, you will receive an offer for 2025 with UCAS (even though the formal Christ's offer letter we send you will say 2026).
    • if you meet the conditions of your offer, your place will be confirmed in late August 2024 (we will write to you)
    • when the next admissions cycle opens in September 2024, please email us to ask us to defer your place to 2026.
    • UCAS will contact you to ask you to formally accept a change to your entry year. Please ensure that you reply promptly.


If you hold a conditional offer

If your offer has academic conditions, then after you have taken your exams, and assuming that you have met the grades we require, we will write to you at the same time as everybody else in mid-August to formally confirm that your offer is now an unconditional offer. There is nothing that you need to do in response to this letter.

You won't hear much from us in September - December 2024, as this is the period in which the rest of your cohort will make their applications, and have their assessment and interviews. The following January we will update the dates and deadlines page for your entry year, and in late January, we will email you with an update including financial information for your entry year and the updated Terms of Admissions for your entry year.



Tuition fee and other costs information will be updated on the university website at the links provided below once the information for 2025 and 2026 entry is confirmed.
