An extremely important part of your EF Gap experience is assessing how you’ve grown as a person and what you’ve learned during a program wrap-up in your final week. You will gather with EF advisors and fellow EF gappers outside London to meet, share, discuss, and present.

EF Gap Year - Wrap-up - Assessment

Assessment and reflection

During Wrap-up, you will revisit the goals you set for yourself at Orientation. You will also discuss the updates you’ve made to your action plan throughout the program. Where have you succeeded or failed? How have you changed and grown? Are your goals the same, or have they changed? This is an ideal time for observation and reflection.


Time with fellow gappers

We set aside plenty of free time so you can enjoy the company of your gap friends to reconnect and share your adventures. You'll also get the chance to journey into central London to revisit some of your favorite neighborhoods, cafes, and shops. 

EF Gap Year - Wrap-up - Family and friends

Awards ceremony and banquet

Wrap-up is also a time of celebration. Your final night abroad you’ll be our guest at an awards ceremony where you'll receive your EF Gap Year Certificate of Completion and celebrate the achievements of your fellow gappers. This is followed by a special themed banquet—the ideal opportunity to say farewell to all the people who have shared your adventure.
