​If you receive a CAO offer from Maynooth University and you wish to defer taking up the place for one year, you must seek the agreement of the University.

Under certain circumstances prospective students of Maynooth University may apply to defer their place on one of our undergraduate degree courses for one year.

Students who have been offered a place through the CAO must formally request a deferral by following the procedure under 'Deferral Procedure A: Seeking a Deferral' below.

​Please note that you cannot defer a course with Maynooth University if you are taking up the offer of another place through the CAO.
