Gap Year in Melbourne
If you love sports, then this is such a fantastic city to live in. As well as watching loads of live events, there are plenty of clubs around that you can join too. So, it’s a chance to try your hand at something you’ve never done before!
PARTICIPANT REFLECTION: Matthew Smith
I was considering becoming a teacher and thought a gap year was a great way to fully experience the very best (and potentially) worst of the teaching profession before I enrolled, studied (and paid) for a university degree. Indeed, this year was very much a learning year for me where now I know that teaching is my calling…. I just need to decide if I want to teach in either a primary or secondary school.

PARTICIPANT REFLECTION: Catherine Woodhead
