Video and Photos


EF Gap Semester is 12-week program that allows students the flexibility of starting in either September or January. The semester begins with a group orientation and discovery tour of Europe. Students then personalize their program with two 4-week modules enabling them to combine their choice of language course, volunteer service or internship. Students regroup for a final leadership seminar, farewell tour of Ireland and Scotland, and gala banquet.

Students are able to earn college credit, place out of language requirements, and return home with a portfolio of certificates that document their achievements. Students can even round their gap experience with an optional college application and essay writing seminar.

Gap Year Internship at an EF Office

I did an internship with EF at one of their offices during my gap year. It was an amazing opportunity to travel, learn, and to meet new amazing people with different backgrounds. The internship was structured very well and gave me a broad range of professional and life experiences that has helped me grow as a person. EF does a great job motivating each individual to push themselves beyond their comfort zones and to be their best self.

I would recommend anyone to take a gap year with EF as it is a great and unique chance that will be very rewarding in so many ways.

Yes, I recommend this program
