gapadvice.org was founded in June 2005 to provide an independent source of impartial advice and information for people of all ages looking to take a gap – a week, a month, a year. It’s a site for young people after leaving school, for undergraduates and those who have just graduated, for those looking for a career break and for those with time in retirement. Families will also find the site of value.
What makes gapadvice.org different?
We provide a unique, independent information and advisory service across the gap year industry, for:
Individuals - pointing you in the right direction
Careers advisers - providing one source of independent advice
Schools/colleges - impartial talks supported by returned 'gappers'
Gap year companies - promoting you through talks, exhibitions, exposure on the website, in articles written or researched for the media
The media - articles written or drafted, research undertaken, contacts given, stories and photographs obtained.
