Gap year travel experiences

With competition for university places and graduate jobs greater than ever, differentiating yourself from the others is becoming increasingly important.

Taking a structured and planned gap year can provide a perfect opportunity for A-level students and graduates alike to gain new experiences and differentiate themselves from the crowd. Mr. Arvind Malhotra, Managing Director for GapGuru shares their experience, "We see the difference a gap year placement makes with young travellers, not only in helping them gain greater confidence and life skills but also benefit from a planned experience relevant to their subject area."

For whatever reason students choose to take a gap year, GapGuru recognises that the best way to make use of it is to spend time doing something worthwhile. An internship abroad can help students to learn skills and gain experience that will improve their chances of getting into university or securing their dream job.

Arvind adds, "GapGuru's medical internships are particularly popular, with opportunities in world-class hospitals and community healthcare centres in India that give students that much needed 'leg-up' on the career ladder. Medical interns at our top hospital placements can work with experts in the fields of cardiology, obstetrics and gynaecology, working across a range of departments and observing both day-to-day and specialist procedures. A medical internship is perfect for anyone pursuing a career in medicine and offers work experience that is difficult to obtain anywhere else in the world."

GapGuru offers a range of unique gap year internships overseas, which are designed to enhance students' CV, while giving them an unforgettable cultural experience. Students can take part in business, journalism and medical internships in Tanzania and India, which give them invaluable experience in some of the most competitive disciplines for university placement and graduate employment.
