A gap year is a transformative 12 months dedicated to cultivating personal and professional growth. Often, a gap year is taken after high school or prior to beginning a career or post-secondary education. Many students fill this year with traveling, volunteering, working abroad, learning a new language, or a mash-up of a few of these options!
The increased popularity of the gap year can be attributed to many things! Lots of research credit gap years to tangible work and academic growth such as learning a new language or international work experience, but there is also much to be said about the personal benefits that a gap year program can supply. Gap years allow for students to re-evaluate their goals, obtain a new perspective of the world, learn about new cultures, make friends from diverse backgrounds, and learn more about themselves.
A list of gap year benefits is listed below—though it isn’t exhaustive!
Academic & Work Benefits
The beauty of a gap year is that it is highly customizable and personal; the possibilities are endless! Many gap year programs don’t span a full year abroad, so this leaves you with extra time to fill with meaningful personal projects. When thinking about taking a gap year, consider what you are looking to accomplish and then start crafting your year abroad!
