Gap Years with Frontier Australia gap year abroad

Taking a Gap Year

Taking a gap year can be the perfect way to gain a new perspective or ease a transition in your life. Whether you want a break before or after university, or fancy taking some time out of your career, a gap year at any age can be a good way to help prepare you for the next stage of your life.

Good for your CV

For anyone looking to add another dimension to their CV a gap year can give you the edge on your competitors. By taking a gap year and volunteering on a project you are demonstrating yourself to any potential employer as a proactive and international citizen, aware of the issues and challenges faced around the globe. Planning and potentially fundraising for your gap year also illustrates a transferable skill set useful in any work place.

Gap years can also be a great way to gain experience in a certain field of interest, or find new passions that could turn into careers. An internship abroad can give you the vital experience many professions require that might not be available at home. Taking on a work placement on your gap year will equally show yourself as having a level of confidence and adaptability, as well as to be enthusiastic in your respective field. If you’re looking to go to university you even have the option to earn additional UCAS points to aid your application, while an additional BTEC qualification is useful at any point in your career.

Good for your soul

Travel opens up a world of possibilities and gives you memories that will last forever. Travelling with a purpose to volunteer on your gap year, will help make your time abroad more meaningful. Whether you want to teach English in Cambodia, help street children in India, track big cats in Costa Rica, or go diving in Tanzania, a gap year is the time to have new experiences, learning about both the world and yourself.
