About the Gap Year Programme
This course is part of the Gap Year Programme, residential in Yarnton Manor, near Oxford.
Students increasingly welcome some time to decide on their next steps before starting university or entering the workplace. They may choose to take up to a year off to travel, volunteer and explore new horizons. This is also known as a gap year. Those experiences undoubtedly provide valuable opportunities to acquire life skills. However, universities and employers also appreciate evidence of constructive academic development during a gap year.
Our 10 week Gap Year Programme enables students to achieve both. Our academic focus strengthens their profile for future university applications or career.
