Is a gap year right for you

Is a gap year right for you?

There are as many different reasons for taking a gap year as there are people taking gap years.

You may want to take a gap year for any of the following reasons:

  •         To take a break before uni
  •         To have some time to think about career options before you start work
  •         To gain some independence
  •         To see if you enjoy working with children
  •         To travel and earn some money
  •         To experience living in another country.

Generally, you’ll find that you’ll get the most out of your gap year more if you are open-minded to the experience, flexible, hardworking, willing to take chances, happy to try new things and enjoy meeting new people.
