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 in London to meet, share, discuss, and present.

EF Gap Year - Wrap-up - Assessment

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.

EF Gap Year - Wrap-up - Family and friends

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.
