A unique global experience in 12 weeks
Start your EF Gap Semester in either September or January. You decide how you'll focus your gap experience by customizing two of your four modules with your choice of Language Study, Service Learning, or Internship.
Please note that the Fall 2020 EF Gap Semester program has been cancelled. However, we are still accepting applications for our EF Gap Year and Costa Rica Immersion programs.
Gap Semester 12 Weeks
Start your EF Gap Year by meeting fellow students at an intensive orientation on an EF campus outside New York City, where you'll gain all the skills you need to succeed during the program.
Evaluate all your experiences, develop a post-gap plan for success in college and your career, and say goodbye to your cohort during a gala farewell banquet and awards ceremony.
Sara S. EF Gap Semester Class of Fall 2019
My EF Gap Semester was one of the best times of my life; it was structured but free and really was a customizable experience that I got to make the most of. I gained a lot and grew immensely as a person because of my gap semester. Barring the typical meeting new people and experiencing new cultures, you learn how to interact with yourself and what you need to succeed which is incredibly valuable when going into college or a career.
