What Gap Year Shows or Events Are There?
Tuesday 25th September 2012
When planning a gap year you may have read all the advice on our website but would like to speak to someone in person and mix with people similar to you who are looking to take a gap year. There are many travel shows that are held that can help you achieve this, one show is coming up soon and the other is at the start of next year but it is worth planning on visiting a show if you feel that you need to speak to someone before you make your mind up that gap year travelling is for you.
The first show is specifically for those looking to travel to Australia and New Zealand and is aptly called ‘The Australia & New Zealand Show’. This show is taking place on the 6th and 7th of October 2012 at Olympia in London. This is an ideal event for those wishing to take a gap year to Australia or New Zealand and offers useful advice on travelling downunder as well as information on studying abroad. Although not gap work specific this is a great event to give you a taster of what Australia and New Zealand life has to offer.
The next show is specifically for gap year travellers seeking additional advice and this show is ‘The London Gap Year & Career Break Show’. This show runs from January 17th to 20th at the ExCel Centre. This event offers advice on all things gap related and also gives you the opportunity to speak face-to-face with people who have been travelling before as well as volunteer and work placement companies who can help you organise your travels.
So if after reading all the useful gap year information on our website and you are still ensure of whether taking a gap year is for you, you should visit one of these shows to get a feel for the whole gap work and gap year idea to explore further whether it is for you.
