Gap Year Anyone?
The idea of taking time off study has become increasingly popular among many Australian students, whether between high school and university or undergraduate studies and a full-time job. We suggest its time to start to plan and book your trip for next year.
By now, most high school leavers are focusing on the next stage of their lives, which for some may be backpacking overseas or seeing the world on a working holiday. More and more graduates are choosing to defer their careers and take time out to travel instead.
If you have itchy feet and want to see the world before you knuckle down, here are just a few things to try...
SEE SNOW FALL IN CANADA NEXT YEAR
Work and play at a popular ski resort in Canada for up to six months during a winter or any time of year, as you can now work and play in Canada all year round for up to 24 Months on a program arranged by Student Flights.
The Canada Powder Pack offers ski lovers the chance to earn money in a pre-arranged job with plenty of free time for discovering some of Canada’s most popular ski fields including Whistler Blackcomb, Big White, Silverstar and Nakiska.
BE THE NEXT MARY POPPINS
BAKE cakes, create crafts and read bedtime stories as a nanny in London. Travellers looking for a fun way to spend a gap year can take their imagination to the UK to work as a full-time nanny for a family, just like Mary Poppins.
EARN POUNDS AT A PUB IN LONDON
PULL pints and mix with the lively lads in London, while you work at a traditional pub during a working holiday in the UK. London is not the only amazing city as there are a number of destinations you can work at throughout the year, and Student Flights can help you get there.
Whatever you do, just please dont end up like this guy!

Where would you Gap Year?
When you want to take a pause in life, between the pressure of study and settling down into the real world, or you just want to shake things up a bit between jobs, head off on an adventure that will expand your horizons and create lasting memories.
Why I chose to volunteer abroad
Volunteering abroad comes with a bit of a social stigma. The 'gap yah' comedy sketch, where posh boy Orlando boasts about his drunken adventures, has led many to dismiss overseas volunteer projects as a middle-class cliche. From my experience, the stereotype couldn't be further from the truth.
