If you would prefer to gain some experience before going to University or entering full time employment taking a gap year is often a popular choice.
There are many opportunities and some ideas include:
- Teaching abroad
- Joining an expedition
Gap Years are a great way to experience new cultures, make a contribution to society and gain a broader horizon of life – and you don’t have to go abroad. You will learn valuable skills such as budgeting and prioritising, cultural understanding and teamwork, all of which will enhance your CV and University application.
