Take your Gap Year in the UK

When most Brits think gap year, their thoughts turn to tropical beaches Far East Asia, or mountain treks in South America, but plenty of people stay much closer to home and take gap years in the UK. And why not! There are plenty of options available, from volunteer work to paid jobs and internships. Apart from the financial savings on transport, not to mention your carbon footprint, we can help your find some great ways to spend your gap year in the UK. Whether you are looking to earn a bit of extra money or develop some new skills to help in your chosen career, we can help.

Or maybe you live in Europe, South Africa or Australia and are thinking about spending some time in the United Kingdom as part of your gap year. We cannot promise unbroken sunshine or world class surfing beaches, but the UK is a great gap year destination with plenty of opportunities for temporary or seasonal work.

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 in England, Wales or Scotland. 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.
