A) Traditionally, the phrase ‘gap year’ meant a period of time taken out by students after leaving college and before starting university. Today, gap years can be taken at any stage, by anyone, and for varying amounts of time. You can fly off to sunnier climates and experience different cultures or stay closer to home and sample what the UK has to offer. Whatever your destination some examples of gap year activities include conservation work, adventure travel programmes, summer schools and internships.
B) Passionate about preserving the planet? Then conservation work may be for you. If physical work doesn’t faze you, agricultural projects ranging from harvesting crops to assisting farmers might give you a sense of satisfaction. If art, drama or music is your thing then this could be the gap year route for you. Whether you’re looking to stay at home or spread your wings further afield, opportunities for charity work, adventure travel and paid work are endless. Question what you want to take from your experience and play to your strengths.
C) The world’s most popular gap year hotspots can be found all around the globe. When deciding what time of year to travel, think about festivals or religious observances that you should be aware of. You should loosely plan your itinerary, including any must-see attractions, activities or work abroad experiences’ that you definitely want to do. Whether you aim to visit the exotic jungles or coastal deserts of Peru, go on the grand tour of Europe, explore the stunning landscapes of Southern Asia you can make the most of your time and enjoy an exciting adventure.
D) Without a clear plan, gap years can become a time to binge on burgers. This is obviously not what you want. If you are going to take a gap year, make sure you have a plan and are doing it for the right reasons. It’s best to look for a volunteer or gap year organization that specializes in these sorts of things. Just double-check that the organization you sign up for is credible! Also, make sure you have something solid to come back to. Consider applying for college when you leave but deferring your enrollment. This will keep you from drifting.
E) Employers will look at hundreds of applications, so you’ll need something to make yours stand out, and a gap year can do just that. Explaining what you did with your time will not only catch their eye — it should also give you interesting examples to draw upon at the interview. One thing that impresses employers is that graduates come back more mature and with more insight into themselves and the world. Many companies will look favourably on applicants who have used their year out to gain valuable knowledge.
F) The definition of a gap year has certainly changed in recent years to adapt to trends in the job market, but the advantages remain unchanged. In an increasingly competitive world, the experiences gained on a gap year have never been more significant. A gap year is a great time to improve your language skills. Whether you fancy surfing, filmmaking, or even cookery this is your chance to broaden your horizons, learn a new craft and increase your confidence and independence.
G) Taking a gap year before college is great way to renew your motivation and interest in study. Having a year out during college can be a great way to clarify your direction in education. A gap year after college can contribute to longer term happiness in the job you are hoping to land. The only real risk you run in deciding when to take a gap year, is deciding not to take one at all. The most regretful people are those who felt wanderlust uprising, and squashed it. So what are you waiting for? Stride off into the sunset to your gap year programme abroad!
