    Gap Experience benefits

    • After giving your career an immediate boost, the soft skills and cultural awareness that come with a longer stay abroad will last a lifetime. Employers and universities value the language and personal skills that come with spending time abroad, but perhaps the most important gains you will make are the personal ones as you learn to see life from a new perspective.

    • Whether you want to gain a particular language qualification or to extend your stay and use language skills in action, for example in a working environment, your Gap Experience programme will be designed according to your personal requirements. Let us know what matters to you and we can make it happen, together. You will never have a better opportunity to become fluent in a foreign language.
