Unfortunately, in most cases, it is not possible to defer the payment of tuition fees. Once your application is successful and you receive the Offer Letter or Acceptance Letter from the university, you will be required to pay the first installment of your tuition fees to obtain the Letter of Confirmation, Visa Invitation, or Final Letter of Acceptance. This letter is essential for applying for your visa and traveling to the country for your studies.
However, in some countries like the USA and Malaysia, the process may be different. They may require you to obtain your visa first before allowing you to pay your tuition fees, as a condition to enter the country accordingly along with your visa.
