Statistics on deferred entry to higher education are available via the University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). In 2010 479,057 applicants accepted a place; 32,983 of these deferred entry to 2011. This covers applicants from all domiciles to all UK institutions.

It is still very early in the UCAS application cycle for entry in 2011 or beyond, so no information is held on the extent of deferred entry. Applicants can make up to five choices on their application form and this can include courses that start in 2011 or 2012.
