One of the attractions of a gap year might be to ‘buy time’ so that you can make up your mind about what to study. But have you thought about making up your mind while you are at uni? There are certain types of degrees that make this option more possible than others. In this episode, we will explore some of the generalist degrees available at uni (like: arts, commerce, business, health science, engineering, law).
Watch Jordan’s story below to see how she is figuring out what she wants to do after uni, while she is studying a generalist degree.

Was the ‘gap year’ resource we shared with you any help? We want to know what you think.
A ‘gap year’ means taking a ‘break’ to engage in various activities between the end of high school and starting your next study.
The University of Sydney is collaborating with the University of Canberra, the University of Wollongong and the Country Education Foundation to develop a free and non-branded information resource to help people decide about gap years and transition from a gap year to the university or other further studies.
Please know that the resource is free and available to everyone; but, this resource is something new … so we are keen to know what people think about it and to research whether the resource is useful or not.
You don’t have to participate in any research just because you use or subscribe to the resource. If you don’t want to participate in the research, just go back to using the resource like normal.
