    Hi all,

    I wonder what the differences between these two terms: "academic leave" and "deferment of study".

    For example:
    I study in a high school, for some reasons, I need to postpone studying in 1 year and come back in the next year.
    In that case, should I use "academic leave" or "deferment of study"? My friends often use "Reserve" but when I searched on the internet, I found these two terms.

    Would you please help me to make it clear?

    Many thanks :)

    I think academic leave refers to a teacher, not a student?
