Gap Year

Gap years are a popular option among school leavers as it allows having a break overseas after studies and putting some valuable experience on the CV.

The part of a gap year most students are excited by is the chance to see the world. There are different types of gap year travels: Volunteering, Summer Camps, TEFL. Some could even see you earning money.

Have a look at the different Gap year and voluntary programmes from NGTU partners. You will find here opportunities to travel to all parts of the world as well as UK-based volunteer and charity work programmes.
