It’s been proven that those who take time out, either before or during their studies, and who participate in a structured program, like ours, perform better at university. In fact, in the United Kingdom and in the United States, students who had taken a Gap Year were more likely to graduate with higher grade point averages than observationally identical individuals who went straight to college, and this effect was seen even for gap year students with lower academic achievement in high school. (Crawford and Cribb 2012, Clagett 2013).
Students who engage in meaningful, supported, career-specific work during their time out from university also increase their employability. As many as 80% of students who took a year out reported that they felt they built and honed skills like self-awareness, confidence, effective communication, independence and teamwork, which in turn made them better candidates for employment and more effective employees.
