Gap Year and Volunteering

Volunteering websites – V’s website (ex-Millennium volunteers) – Community Service Volunteers’ website – A gap year website with information on how to plan and organise a gap year as well as some suggestions on what you could do and where you could go – broken down into some ‘easy to use’ categories.  It includes a section on “short gaps” for those of you considering a small amount of time away during your year off.

A ‘year in industry’ – For students looking for paid employment during a gap year, and who are interested in working in STEM industries, you can use this website to search, and apply, for vacancies.
