Take your Gap Year in the UK

We created our UK gap year page in direct reponse to requests from visitors to our website who either wanted to take some time out before embarking upon their career, or were looking for a sabbatical from work. For some people the chance to explore another country or continent is a desired part of the experience, but if money is tight, or you have ties to the UK, then it is still perfectly possible to take a gap year in the UK.
