What is a gap year?

A gap year is time taken out of your academic studies to travel, broaden your horizons and possibly gain some work experience. A gap year can be taken prior to beginning your studies, during your course or afterwards. Many students travel abroad, but you can stay in the UK and find employment here.

Whatever you do, it is important to plan your gap year to ensure it is a productive experience.
