Gap year in Australia

If you enjoy the outdoors, then there's no better place to spend a year studying abroad than Australia. During your gap year in Australia, you'll meet people from across Asia, explore new places, and have countless adventures. You'll also spend lots of time studying English, and then reinforcing your new skills by using them outside class. By the end of a gap year in Australia, you can expect to be a confident English speaker in a wide variety of situations. A year in Australia also gives you plenty of time to travel around the country if you want to, or to get integrated into your city of residence through a volunteer program.

A student nexus

During a gap year in Australia, you'll study in a country recognized for academic excellence. Australia attracts tens of thousands of international students every year, and it's a straightforward process to enter Australia's education system as a foreign student. In that type of environment, you can meet people easily, make new connections, and understand what it is like to live in one of the world's most multi-cultural countries. After your gap year in Australia, you won't just have new language skills. You'll also have a better understanding of how to succeed in a globally connected workplace, and you'll have friends in places all over the world.
