Is a Gap Year Right For You? [Infographic]

Taking a Gap Year has been common place in Europe and is a growing trend in the US now too. Gap years provide a ‘space’ in a student’s education to explore the world and learn more about themselves before the plunge headlong into their degrees. While study abroad allows you to see the world while earning credits for your degree, a gap year opens the door for travel, volunteering or working in an alternate field. There are even scholarships to help you fund it.
