Start your EF Gap Semester by meeting fellow EF gappers at our orientation in London, where you gain all the skills you need to succeed.
Next, get to know Europe with an insider’s perspective on a professionally guided tour of its greatest cities: London, Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, and Barcelona.
Choose the global skill you would like to learn
Now you can start customizing your EF Gap Semester by deciding how—and where—you will build your skills in one of three essential aspects of a global career:
Build your communication skills at a fully accredited EF language school abroad. We offer 7 languages, all located in world-class cities: Spanish, French, Italian, German, Mandarin, Japanese, and Korean.
Help a community in the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Peru, Tanzania, Thailand, or Nepal empower its youth, improve its water and food supplies, or preserve its environment.
Gain valuable business experience abroad by working at a respected organization in a world-class city: Dublin, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Berlin, Sydney, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Tokyo, or Seoul.
Continue customizing your EF Gap Semester
Deepen your understanding of the same global skill with a change of country. Or broaden your knowledge by exploring a different skill.
Then attend a transformative Leadership Academy at Hult International Business School’s Ashridge campus near London.
Share all you’ve learned during your EF Gap Semester at our wrap-up, which includes a gala farewell banquet and awards ceremony.
