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.
  • Did you complete the requirements of the OSSD?
  • Earn Credit(s).
  • Learn Who They Are and Discover Their Potential.

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”.
