Gap Year Internships

Intern abroad with GapGuru and learn new skills on your gap year abroad. Our medical internships, journalism internships and business internships give you the chance to combine working abroad with culture and travel. Gap year interns can immerse themselves in overseas communities, while gaining confidence and building invaluable experience for their CV. An internship abroad is the perfect way to make the most of your gap year.
I came to India for medical work experience so that I could immerse myself in the life of a doctor and see if this was really the career for me. The hospital and its staff were amazing and I learnt more about medicine than I could have ever hoped.

Gap Year Teaching

Education is often the best way to help underprivileged communities overseas. By teaching English abroad on volunteer teaching projects you can make a real difference on your gap year. Whether teaching in Africa, Asia or South America, gap year volunteers can bring energy and enthusiasm to stimulate disadvantaged children. With opportunities to teach arts, crafts and drama and other extra-curricular activities, teaching overseas can be a varied and rewarding way to spend you gap year.
The students are all so intelligent and try so hard that it is such a joy to be able to help them make a proper start in life. I have been so inspired that I hope to return and work with these sorts of underprivileged children in the future. Opportunity not to be missed!

Gap Year Volunteering

Volunteer abroad during your gap year and get involved with community development, wildlife conservation, sports coaching, volunteer childcare and much more besides. You could be working as an orphanage volunteer in Tanzania caring for children affected by HIV/AIDS, or teaching arts, crafts and music in community volunteer projects in India. Wherever you spend your gap year volunteering, your energy and enthusiasm can help to improve the lives of those less fortunate.
I couldn't have had a better time if I'd tried. The children and the staff were incredibly friendly, they made me so welcome. I had the opportunity to work on a 1:1 basis with the children which was great fun and extremely beneficial.

Gap Year Travel

Gap year travel is your opportunity to explore the world and the amazing sights it has to offer.

From adventure travel treks in Asia to African wildlife safaris, we have something for everyone! Take a break from your gap year volunteer work to travel India, Nepal or Tanzania for some unforgettable experiences!
The Mount Meru Trek was absolutely amazing! I loved every single minute of it. It was tough, but so worth it. We got to the summit at dawn and watching the sunrise over Kilimanjaro is the most incredible thing I've ever seen!
