WHERE IN THE WORLD WILL YOU GO?

EF Gap Year is designed to transform you into a global citizen.

Imagine taking an immersion Spanish course in Madrid, then using your new communication skills to help members of a local community in the Dominican Republic rebuild its schools. Next imagine heading “down under” for a tour of Australia and New Zealand, then interning at multinational company in Shanghai. Round out your year with a seminar at our two-week Leadership Academy hosted at a prestigious business school outside London. With EF Gap Year, the possibilities are virtually endless!
