Gap year

Gap years can be taken after A-levels and before university and can be a fulfilling time in which some students travel, experience the world of work, improve language skills and/or learn a new craft.

At Ashmole we offer students access to independent advice on taking gap years and can put the students in touch with voluntary organisations and charities that run more structured programmes, for example Raleigh International.

Students should contact their chosen university as to their policies on gap years.  We offer a variety of websites, guides and literature to help students to help plan their year.
