Take a Gap Year
Interested in seeing the world? Upon gaining entrance to your chosen university degree, you have the option to defer your course for six to twelve months and take a gap year.This is an opportunity to gain worldly experience through travel, volunteering and international community projects.
Opportunities span across working in ski resorts, as camp counselors running children’s activities, teaching English as a foreign language and volunteering on environmental and animal conservation projects around the world. It's possible to volunteer overseas during your university holidays too!
Remember, employers are looking for well-rounded individuals. The more experiences you have under your belt, the more unique your professional profile becomes and the more stories you have to share in interviews!
