More and more students are tempted to take a gap-year after high school but don't know what to do, if it is your case you are at the right place.

Why would you do a gap-year?

At 18 years old, it is hard to know what you want to do in your life and what do you want to study, therefore a gap-year can permit you to discover new things, open your mind, become more mature and know yourself more.

So here are a few activities you can do...

Carry out a project

If you are working on something, or if you have a project that is important to you, you can give your gap-year to this project. It can be the creation of a business, a charity or anything.

Work

You can find a job near your home to put money aside for later and to have a professional experience. But you can also work for six months and then travel with that money the last six months. That is all about you!

Work abroad

If you have the means to go abroad, just go! If you are just 18, it can be a little scary but if you feel like you really want to do it don't hesitate. As well as you will make money, you will have the chance to discover a new culture and (maybe) learn a new language.

Travel

Learn a language in the country

The other alternative is to go abroad to learn a new language, make new friends all over the world, to immerse yourself into the country's culture. There are a lot of organizations that offer it as Education First but it is a little bit expensive.

Humanitarian Trip

If you want to be totally disconnected from your daily life and help people in need that is what you need. It can be a way to discover the world and yourself at the same time without all the influences we have around us everyday to focus on something important: help others.
