Deferring nursing place

My daughter has got a place nursing but said she doesn't feel ready for university yet. She says she wants a break from studies and get a job or voluntary position nursing/care related. I really really want her to go as I've read you can't defer nursing so have advised her to call the university tomorrow to discuss how she's feeling, with the hope that they reassure her to take the place etc etc. I don't know what else to suggest to her and I'm worried if she doesn't go in September she won't ever

She will have to pay fees for her course if she doesn't go this year as the NHS isn't going to be funding them any more. Saving £27k is a big incentive to go this year! OTOH nursing is a demanding course and she will struggle if her heart isn't in it.

A couple of local unis do March starts so wouldn't attract fees until September 2017 as I understand it. Her hearts seems to be in it she just wants a break - if can't force her although am tempted lol
