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.
