Why Do a Gap Year?

by AIFS Study Abroad

Increasingly, students are opting to do a gap year abroad before college. Students can earn credit towards their degrees, learn a second language by being immersed for an entire year, and gain valuable life skills that might not be learned on a college campus.

A gap year might be for you if:

  • You have been accepted at a college for the spring semester, and you’d like an academic program to participate on for the fall semester
  • You are undecided on your college plans and need a year to decide on/reapply to colleges
  • You’d like an extra year of life experience before attending college
  • You will be at least 18 by the program start date

AIFS offers gap year programs in:

And many summer locations as well. Check out our website for more details, or contact us today.
