Gap-Year-PicWith ‘A’ level results day just around the corner on 15 August, students all over the country will soon be contemplating their future, including thinking about whether to take a gap year.

Gayunpaman, nangungunang online backpacker travel insurance specialist Essential Travel urges students to not only consider whether they will take a gap year, but also when they will take it, as a recent Essential Travel interview has revealed that taking a gap year mid course can be damaging for students. Essential Travel sought advice from Dr Kingsley Sage, lecturer in computer studies at Sussex University, for a Tutor’s perspective of how gap years can affect students:

Putting aside studying abroad as part of a course, gap years in the middle of your degree is a bad idea, says Dr Sage: “Taking a gap year in your middle years can be quite damaging, actually. For a start it can destroy your perception of university study, and how you feel about it. I believe if you do something you should do it wholeheartedly and a gap year can be incredibly distracting – you’ll be thinking and planning for it beforehand, and possibly find it difficult to get back into the routine of study afterwards, or just lose your enthusiasm for it. There are many stories about people getting depressed after a gap year, or just coming back to reality with a crash. If you are just starting University or looking for a job, you at least have something exciting to be thinking about… a new challenge. Whereas, if you are just coming back to something you know already, you might very well find it hard.”

Ang isang kapansin-pansing alternatibo ay upang magplano ng isang puwang sa loob ng iyong bakasyon. Sa 3-4 na mga buwan ng bakasyon, ang mga mag-aaral ay maaaring mag-pack ng maraming sa oras na iyon.

Isang taon ng pre-university gap

Ang pagkuha ng isang puwang taon bago ang mas mataas na edukasyon ay hinihikayat ng maraming mga institusyon na naniniwala na ang isang taon sa mundo bago ang unibersidad ay tumutulong upang pag-isipan ang mga mag-aaral at bigyan sila ng kaunting karanasan sa isang bagay maliban sa pag-aaral, at sa panahon ng kanyang panayam ay iminungkahi ni Dr Kingsley Sage na ito ay sa katunayan ang pinakamahusay na oras upang kumuha ng isang taon ng puwang:

“At 18 you may have something you’ve been burning to do, some passion you want to nurture, and your gap year will be more about you and what you want. Once you start at University, there will be a lot of peer influence about the cool things to do, such as a certain place to travel, and you may find yourself led astray from what you really want to do.”

Magingat sa: Ang ilang mga unibersidad ay hindi maaaring magpahintulot sa iyo na magpaliban sa isang taon

Mag-post ng taon ng agwat sa unibersidad

Pagkatapos ng tatlo o apat na taon ng pag-aaral, ang pagkuha ng oras ay maaaring tunog ang pinaka-halata na bagay na gawin, at literal kang magkaroon ng mundo na pinili mula sa! Maaari din itong maging oras upang maging semento ang pagkakaibigan at maglakbay bilang isang grupo bago maglakbay papunta sa iba't ibang lugar

Dr Sage suggests that a gap year at this time is a must if you haven’t yet done it and know that it’s something you want to do: “You certainly need to get it out of your system before you settle down to a job if you know it’s something you really want to do. One thing I would bear in mind, though, is that you may miss the graduate recruitment fairs, which for many are the best ways to get a job after graduation, and if you have to wait a whole year for it to come around again, that can be a long time.”

Magingat sa: Reluctant parents who may have been helping to fund you, and now want to see you “knuckle down” and get some work rather than what they may perceive as go away on a long holiday!
