Gap-year Programmes


A detailed discussion to understand if your child might benefit from a gap-year programme abroad.

Not all children want to follow the traditional school-to-college route, and more and more parents are becoming receptive to the idea of a gap year. Today, children want to explore more before deciding on an undergraduate degree so that they can be sure of their chosen career path. If your child is unsure of their career choice or would like to get a better understanding of their choices, or would simply like to take a break before taking the big plunge into higher education, a gap year might be a great choice for them.

Our international education strategists will discuss the opportunities available in gap- year programmes abroad help remove your doubts and worries about the same, and provide the guidance you need to make a decision.


You will gain an understanding of the global gap-year programmes and opportunities suited to your child’s interests and goals, along with a list of action points to focus on to actualize those goals.
