Assessment and reflection
During Wrap-up week, 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.
Gala banquet and awards ceremony
Wrap-up week is also a time for celebration. We set aside plenty of free time so you can enjoy the company of your gap friends at your favorite haunts around London. Your final night abroad you’ll be our guest at a banquet where, together, we’ll toast your amazing achievements at the awards ceremony and say farewell.
Family and friends are welcome!
Your loved ones are welcome to travel to London (at their own expense) to attend your final gala banquet and awards ceremony. It’s a great time to introduce them to your new friends and share your own personal achivements. We just ask that you kindly share their travel plans in advance with your EF Gap Advisor.
Your wrap-up program
Moderated group discussions about your gap experiences and what you learned. These also include a review of the goals you set in your action plan at Orientation and how you’ve achieved them.
You will also break up into small groups to create a multimedia presentation on the meaning of global citizenship and its impact on society. These presentations will be made to your entire gap cohort on the final day.
Gala banquet & awards ceremony
End your gap experience in style at a sumptuous formal dinner attended by all your gap friends and EF advisors. It’s a chance to toast to your global citizenship and honor fellow students who have particularly distinguished themselves during their gap.
