Are you a fan of white sandy beaches, stunning weather, an outdoor barbecue with mates or anything sports related? If you said yes to one or more of the above (and who wouldn’t?), a gap year in the land down under may be calling your name!
Our Australian gap year programme gives you a taste of the Aussie lifestyle that a normal tourist could only ever dream of. You’ll work as an assistant at a leading Australian school, and be immersed in every aspect of typical Australian life. A huge range of school placements are on offer throughout the country, from the stunning tropical coastline of Northern Queensland, to the rugged and impenetrable forests of Tasmania.
And during the school holiday periods (of which there are many), you’re free to explore every corner of this wide brown land. From the parched landscapes of the red centre, where you can gaze awestruck at Uluru and learn about its importance to the Aboriginal Dreamtime, to the picture perfect coastal towns of Port Douglas and Cairns, where the combination of the rainforest, beach and Great Barrier Reef will make you feel as though you’ve stumbled right into a postcard. And when you’ve had just about enough of all of the disturbingly beautiful nature, you can treat yourself to the cosmopolitan delights of Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide or Brisbane.
Our Australian gap year programs include meals, accommodation, a weekly allowance, visa assistance, a comprehensive in-country orientation (check out the video below for more), as well as ongoing support from our committed team. If you find yourself in the surfing hub of the Gold Coast, you can even pop into our offices to say hi!
