Taking a gap year
A gap year can be a useful and rewarding experience if it is well planned, helping your personal development and expanding the skills you will need in your future career.
Usually about seven per cent of accepted applicants take a gap year with a deferred entry to university.*
* 6.9% of accepted applicants deferred from 2010 to 2011 entry (UCAS statistics). This does not include those who apply to Higher Education after their results.
