Gap Year

A “gap year” often refers to the time off a student takes prior to commencing their formal post-secondary education and may include:

  • Community service.
  • Travel.
  • Volunteerism.
  • Church-related missionary work.
  • Earn Credit(s).

Such activities can be very fulfilling as well as enhance your admission eligibility; depending on the nature of the gap year and your experiences.

Let edvice4you clarify such opportunities and the benefits they may provide.¬† You may want to consider an “admission deferral” prior to your “gap year”.
