What is a Gap Year?

Taking a gap year abroad provides you with the chance to spend time travelling, working, doing new things, making new memories and of course having immense fun in a different part of the world.

Your gap year abroad can be whatever you want it to be and represents a fantastic opportunity for you to step out of your comfort zone and do something incredible that you will never forget. So make sure you plan carefully and make the most of your time away!

There are so many things you could do on your gap year. You could undertake a volunteer project in a deprived community; you could play or coach your favourite sport, explore new cities, countries and cultures or embark on an adventure (just to name a few!).

A gap year away from home can also help you become more independent, learn new skills and find out more about yourself. Doesn’t sound bad does it?

These are just a few of the many excellent features of a gap year. Want to know more? Then have a read of our ‘why take a gap year’ page!
