Gap Year in Asia

What is a Gap Year?

A Gap Year is associated with taking time out to travel between life stages, it’s not just students. It is also known as a sabbatical, time off, time out, careerbreak and a year out, referring to a period of time (not necessarily 12 months) in which people disengage from curricular education and/or work and undertake activities such as travelling, volunteering or working abroad.

Gap year’s have been popular in the UK since the early 1980’s and is a growing trend around the world, except in Denmark where the number of people taking a gap year is decreasing.
