Once a ruler of half of the world, and steeped in history and culture, the United Kingdom is a must-see for any keen traveller. But why just see it? Why not live it? With our UK gap year program, you have the chance to experience the real Britain.
This diverse country has it all. Witness the ridiculous opulence of Buckingham palace, home to the royal family. Enjoy the salt-of-the-earth banter that comes with sharing a warm pint of ale with a West country farmer (home to the famous ‘pirate’ accent!). Whether your idea of history is the antiquity of Stonehenge or the favourite haunts of The Beatles; whether you’d rather the white cliffs of Dover, or the charm of the lake district; there’s something for everyone in old Britannia. What’s more, the rest of Europe is just a hop, step and a jump away!
As a gap assistant, you’ve got the opportunity to work alongside staff at local schools in England, Scotland and Wales, experiencing life in the British Isles first-hand. And when school’s out, you’re free to roam not just the country, but the entire continent – all of Europe’s major attractions are right there on your doorstep, after all! If you show enough initiative and enthusiasm, you may even get the chance to experience the UK and Europe’s charms as an assistant on a school camp!
Our UK gap year program will include meals, accommodation, a weekly allowance, visa assistance, a comprehensive in-country orientation and ongoing support from our committed team. If you find yourself in London, you can even pop into our offices to say hi!
