EF Gap Year is a 26-week program that enables students to explore several countries, learn a language, volunteer for a good cause, engage in meaningful cultural exchange, gain work experience abroad, and develop leadership skills.
The EF Gap Year begins in September with a group orientation and 2 weeks of cultural immersion in Europe. Students are then able to personalize their own gap experience by choosing the country and focus of their language course, volunteer service and internship. Later in the year, students regroup for an in-depth tour of Australia & New Zealand. Leadership Academy and a gala banquet wraps up the program.
Students are able to earn college credit, place out of language requirements, and return home with a portfolio of certificates that document their achievements.
